Red Rock looks to recruit players at their tournament

THE Red Rock 7s side aims to recruit players during their tournament which starts this morning at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

This is because 10 of their current players have signed contracts with Australian clubs during their tour last month.

The MH-sponsored side competed in three tournaments. In two tournaments, they were bundled out in the quarter-final but managed to win the final tournament — the Kiama 7s.

Team coach Lote Rasiga said they were happy that 10 of their players managed to impress overseas clubs.

"They will join their respective clubs by April 2 and we wish them all the best in their careers," he said.

"But that would mean we would need some players to replace them and that is why we will be scouting for talent at our tournament this weekend."

Rasiga said 40 teams had confirmed participation in their tournament.

He added the only thing they are worried about is the weather.

"We have teams like Wardens Gold and Green, Police I and II, Hideaway Hurricanes, Waimanu, Tabadamu, Marist and our own club will have two teams — Fulton Hogan Red Rock Branch and Hot Bread Kitchen Red Rock Premium.

"And the only thing is that we are hoping for good weather to prevail so that we have a good tournament where we can see good talent on show."

Rasiga was confident his teams would do well after they lost in the quarter-finals of the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s last weekend.

"In the week before the Marist 7s, there was heavy rain and there was flood in Qauia and our park was under water and we could not prepare well.

"But we have had good weather this week and trained well and we hope to do well this weekend."
