POLICE Nausori beat Natakala 12-7 in the final of the Salato Mini 7s on Saturday to walk away $700 richer.

Organisers had to bring the prizemoney down from $1000 after only 11 teams turned up for the competition at the Assemblies of God High School grounds in Kinoya.

The actual target was 16 teams but only 15 registered and then four teams didn't turn up on the day of the competition, forcing organiser Wame Ratadai to cut down the prizemoney.

He said despite the shortage of teams, they managed to have a successful tournament.

"The tournament was for those teams that were not able to compete in the Marist 7s," Ratadai said.

"Mai Dive Ono from Kadavu had been camping in Suva for three weeks for the Marist 7s but the organisers told them they failed to pay the registration fees on time and so they were about to go home disappointed until they saw our tournament.

"Also we had a team come from as far as Ra - Senivaivai from Bucalevu and they lost 0-5 to Natakala in the quarter-final."

Mai Dive Ono lost 0-5 to Police Nausori in the first semi-final and Natakala beat Alfred Babas 17-0 in the second semi-final.

Natakala won $300 for playing in the final.
