Exposure to help Red Rock

Arin Kumar

THE Red Rock 7s team will just have to rely on the experience they gained during their Australian tour earlier this month when they compete in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament next week.

The Qauia-based sided had organised a tournament to be played today and tomorrow at Ratu Cakobau Park but were forced to postpone it because of bad weather.

Red Rock manager Malakai Yamaivava said the tournament was supposed to serve as their build-up to the Marist 7s tournament.

"Not only for us but other top teams were looking at using our tournament as a build-up to Marist," he said.

"Now we will just have to rely on whatever experience we gained from our tour of Australia where we competed in three tournaments and won one — the Kiama 7s."

Yamaivava said the tournament was now scheduled for March 14 and 15.

"We called the Nausori Town Council and they told us the ground would be available on this date so we will just have to host the tournament then.

Meanwhile, only one team had pulled out of the Red Rock 7s tournament.

"Lomaiviti has pulled out but we will still have full attendance because we managed to find a replacement.

"Natakala, which has won a few tournaments in the Eastern division, will replace Lomaiviti."
