Yamacia hosts 7s event in Navosa

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, March 18, 2014

LOCAL 7s giant Yamacia rugby team has set its focus on spreading the rugby gospel to farmers in the hills of Navosa.

With the achievements of three Yamacia players such as Semi Kunatani, Donasio Ratubuli and Mosese Nawalu wearing the national 7s white jersey, the club is committed to developing untapped talent in the highlands to follow in the footsteps of their rugby heroes.

Team president David Dakuitoga said the club would host a 7s tournament at Keiyasi to identify untapped talent in the highlands.

"The 7s tournament is prioritised for the young adults in the region, many of whom have stood at the crossroads of marijuana and family life.

"The support for 7s tournaments and the teams comes from fans and supporters here and overseas."

Dakuitoga said participating teams at the two-day meet were mostly rugby teams within Navosa.

"This tournament being the first of its kind will enable the community from 10 villages to understand the options they have in the game of rugby.

"The 7s tournament theme is 'Impossible Made Possible'," he said.
