THE Red Rock 7s side finally tasted victory on their Australian tour when they beat fellow Fiji team Yamacia 19-5 to win the Kiama 7s tournament on Saturday.

Red Rock had lost in the quarter-finals of both the Crescent Head 7s and Lake Macquarie 7s in the weeks leading up to Kiama 7s.

Their opponents, Yamacia, had managed to reach the semi-finals of both events but were well beaten by the Lote Rasiga-coached side in the Kiama 7s.

National sprinter Waisake Raselala scored a try for Red Rock in the final and was later named the player of the tournament.

Team manager Malakai Yamaivava said Rasiga called him after the tournament to tell him the good news.

"He told me that it took them two tournaments to find the winning combination," Yamaivava said.

"He said they clicked in the final tournament and played really well."

The team returns today and will launch their tournament tonight in Nadi.

The tournament will be played this weekend at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.
