THE First Landing Resort Barbarians have roped in former national rep Taniela Rawaqa to boost their bid for the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s.

Rawaqa first represented Fiji in the International Rugby Board Sevens World Series in 2008.

The side received a major boost yesterday in the form of new uniforms from the sponsor, First Landing Resort.

The Vuda-based team is the top seed in Pool 15 which has Duavata Rugby Club Burerua, Laucala Island Rugby Club and Lalati Wahleys Rugby.

Team manager Jim Nasilasila said they were participating in the Marist 7s for the third year.

Nasilasila said they lost to Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians in the Martintar 7s in Nadi last Saturday.

"We have reached the quarter-finals and the semi-finals of many tournaments before but haven't won any. For the Marist 7s we will take each game as it comes."
