AN increase in the number of clubs has overwhelmed the Namosi Rugby Union.

Union secretary Navitalai Naivalurua confirmed 21 clubs had registered with the union to compete in their 10s tournament at Thomson Park in Navua this Saturday.

He said last season they had only 14 clubs.

"The increase in clubs is a good sign because now, we have a larger player base from which to choose our provincial side," Naivalurua said.

"Some new clubs from different villages have come to be affiliated with that and we are happy with the response.

"Even Korovisilou from as far as Serua, has come to play under us."

Naivalurua said the increase would mean healthy competition.

"All teams are unpredictable and they will not know what to expect from their opponents."
