THE Marist Rugby Club received a timely boost from the Marist Old Boys ahead of the 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament which will start on Friday next week at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

The MOB yesterday presented a cheque of $5000 to help the club organise the two-day tournament.

This year's Marist 7s tournament will have 64 men's, eight ladies and six oldies teams participating.

Chairman of the organising committee, Lawrence Tikaram in thanking the MOB said the support was a timely one.

"It's not easy organising a tournament of this magnitude because it requires a lot of time, effort and resources," Tikaram said.

"The strength of the Marist 7s is we have a great calibre of people who are part of the organisation."

MOB president Nesbitt Hazelman said they were looking forward to continuing their partnership with the club in the years to come.

"We are proud to support in endeavour to have the largest rugby 7s tournament in Fiji and the world," Hazelman said.

"We feel it's our duty to support the Marist 7s and we want to make this an ongoing support.

"The Marist Old Boys in Fiji is behind you and fully support the tournament."

Tikaram said they would announce more sponsors next week.
