FIJI sevens winger cum hooker Benito Masilevu will bolster the Lomaiviti Barbarians team's campaign at the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament in Suva next week.

Masilevu, a regular face in the national sevens make-up this season broke into the HSBC Sevens World Series following impressive performances for Lomaiviti during the domestic competition.

Lomaiviti coach Sekaia Ragata said it would be a huge boost to have the services of the experienced Masilevu.

"Yes, Ben (Masilevu) will play for us at the Marist 7s," he said.

"We know his presence will be a huge boost to the team especially the experience that he will bring will certainly boost the morale of the players."

He said Masilevu had been supportive to the side despite being occupied with national duties.

"Ben always visits the team even though he spends much time playing for the national team. He is still an important part of this team and we're happy to have his services back."

Lomaiviti was knocked out in the quarter-finals last year.

Ragata said they wanted to better their performance when the tournament kicks off next week Friday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
