Organisers happy with perfect tournament

THE 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s organisers paid tribute to the players for their hard work and dedication in making the annual event the best in the country.

Dubbed the biggest 7s tournament in the country, the organisers of the 2014 Marist 7s were yesterday hailed for yet another perfect tournament.

Chairman of the organising committee Lawrence Tikaram also thanked the volunteers for their service.

"The success comes from the efforts put in by the players. Without the players putting in so much effort during the tournament, it wouldn't have been a success," he said.

"And of course when you have the players generating that kind of the excitement, the fans will follow.

"I think all the clubs have a huge fan following base and I thank them for making the 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s a success."

Tikaram said they had learnt some lessons from this year's tournament.

He said one of them was to have a minute's break at halftime during the matches.

"There are few things that we have learnt that we can certainly improve on but we will discuss that in our management brief.

"One definite area is the teams playing the full seven minutes and a one-minute break at half time.

"We try to create the best atmosphere for the players.

"This tournament is about the players and Fiji rugby going to greater heights."
