Tavua to host sevens event

IN a bid to help with development and the exposure of talent from village clubs, the organisers of the Lomavata 7s tournament are taking their next event to Tavua.

They hosted the Gaunavou 7s thrice at the Ba Market Grounds and the Lomavata 7s thrice at Churchill Park in Lautoka.

Official Timoci Driu said many teams from Ra, Tavua and Vatukoula had shown interest in participating but were not able to make it to Lautoka.

"We also want to give the smaller clubs a chance to compete in tournaments with the big boys and expose their talent," he said.

"The more tournaments they play, the better these small teams become and the more confident their players get.

"That is instead of taking the tournament far away from them, we are bringing it right to their doorstep."

Driu said now the village clubs would have a bigger backing since their supporters would be able to travel to Garvey Park to cheer them on. We are accommodating 24 teams. Registration closes on Thursday (tomorrow)."
