TOKATOKA Westfield Barbarians Vilimoni Morawa could provide the answer to Ben Ryan's halfback woes after starring in the Martintar 7s at Prince Charles Park in Nadi yesterday.

Morawa was voted as the best player of the tournament helping the Barbarians down Mala Young Boys 17-7 in the Cup final.

The Yasawa man was excellent at the breakdowns and proved to be the game breaker.

Barbarians coach Epeli Lagiloa labelled Morawa's efforts as outstanding.

Lagiloa said the player would be the one to watch when they defend the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s next weekend.

"Vilimoni has been vying for a position in the Fiji team for some time," he said.

"So I think he will be the player to watch in the Marist 7s and he will prove it over there. Ben will watch the tournament and he can see for himself the capabilities of Vilimoni.

"He played for my Fiji National University team before joining Lote Rasiga's Red Rock."

The Mala Young Boys team scored first through Timoci Naika. Vatemo Ravouvou scored for the Barbarians. Mala Young boys led 7-5 at the break.

The Barbarians dominated the second spell with Inia Naqia and Sireli Mulevoro crossing over.

Lagiloa said their national squad members also had a good outing.

"It was a hard fought win but we made the fans happy by taking out title. It is a good preparation for us heading into the Marist 7s.

"The team is injury free. I'm proud of Emosi (Mulevoro), Samu (Saqiwa), Vatemo who played a rover and Akuila (Vula). I will send a report to Ben."

The Barbarians received $3000 while Mala Young Boys got $1000.

In the semi-final the Barbarians beat First Landing 19-10 while Mala Young Boys defeated Hideaway Hurricanes 10-0.

Gaunavou won the Shield final beating Naviti 17-14.

Western Wardens One won the Bowl title downing Natabua 25-17 while Western Wardens won the Plate title defeating Yasawa Stingers 7-0.
