7s meet for village teams

TWO separate sevens tournaments have been organised to cater for teams that won't be able to compete in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament today and tomorrow.

The Lomavata 7s tournament will be hosted at Churchill Park in Lautoka to cater for Western teams division while the Salato Mini 7s tournament will be held at the Assemblies of God High School grounds in Kinoya for teams from the Central and Eastern divisions.

Both tournaments are one-day events on Saturday.

Lomavata 7s tournament organiser Timoci Driu said they knew some teams tried but missed out on the cut for the Marist 7s which begins today at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

"Our main team will compete in the Marist 7s tournament but we noticed that the smaller clubs here in the West will be idle during this weekend because they have no tournament to compete in," he said.

"So we have organised this tournament to cater for them, especially village teams from the West who hardly ever get exposure or get a chance to play on a ground like Churchill Park."

Salato Mini 7s tournament organiser Wame Ratadai echoed similar sentiments.

"Not all village teams got a chance to compete in the Marist 7s tournament and so we are here for them," he said.

"Also not all teams from the Suva-Nausori corridor were able to pay their entry fees for the Marist 7s tournament on time, so we organised something for them."
