THE Uluinakau Rugby Club will use the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s to give their players exposure to top level competition.

The club will field three teams in the two-day tournament at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Team one coach Marika Kolinivala said they were looking forward to meeting the big clubs of the sport in the country.

Yesterday the side had a friendly match against the Nasolo Young Boys in Nausori.

"The match was just to check our defence, attack and combinations and from what I have seen, the boys are doing very well," he said.

"I am sure on Friday they will give a much better performance."

The Uluinakau team one is pooled with Lomaiviti Babas, Wardens Green and Nawaka.

"We are not underestimating or overestimating any team.

"We just want to give a good performance in all our games so that we can hopefully impress some potential sponsors.

"Right now we have no sponsor and we do our own fundraising and my brother Epi Kolinivala sends us some money from Sudan."

The other two teams are from Namarai and Tobu villages.

Team two is pooled with Police National, Tauranga Qaliduna Levuka Ovalau and CK Ezy Buy Tabadamu II while team three is pooled with defending champions Tokatoka Westfield Babas, West Roosters Wellington NZ and Nailaga Rugby Club.

Kolinivala said he was hoping the other Uluinakau teams also play well and their players impress the national selectors with their raw talent.
