ORGANISERS of the Red Rock sevens tournament hailed yesterday's event as a success and hope to organise another tournament in the western side later this year.

"Firstly we're thankful to the Lord for the past two days, the tournament went well and I believe it was a success," tournament organise Malakai Yamaivava said.

"The weather was fine and I believe everyone that turned up enjoyed their time watching sevens rugby at its best."

He said they wanted to spread the gospel of sevens rugby to the West soon.

"We hope to organise a similar tournament in Lautoka or Nadi later this year. Our first priority is Lautoka but if Churchill Park is occupied then we will bring it to Nadi."

He said the club was fundraising for its Australian tour in October.

Yamaivava said the recent tour to Australia set the platform for upcoming tours.

"We just came back from a tour in Australia and we're looking forward to more tours.

"We might be touring Australia again in October so we will fundraise and start looking for funds now while we still have time."

Yamaivava acknowledged the sponsors and supporters of the two-day event that was held at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Friday and yesterday.
