NAKASI Highlanders and Uni Babas shared the prizemoney at the Lautoka Indo Fijian Union 7s tournament at Churchill Park yesterday.

This after the final between the two teams ended in a 5-all draw after sudden-death play.

The organisers gave the teams an option to decide the winner by the toss of the coin, however the captains of the teams decided to share the prizemoney.

In the semi-final Uni Babas thrashed Ba 35-0 while the Highlanders scraped past the Wainivula Eels 5-0.

Fiji Rugby Union Indo Fijian rugby development officer Solo Finau said it was good to get Indo Fijian rugby back on the scene in the West.

Finau said the 7s tournament organisers around the country should cater for the Indo Fijian clubs.

"There were ten clubs which is a big number considering that Indo Fijian rugby is being revived in Lautoka," he said.

"It was very encouraging to see the support that the clubs have. Uni Babas is one of the upcoming teams.

"This was their first final and the team is made up of university students from Suva.

"There was a team from Lautoka Central College and we want more schools to join."

The annual general meeting for the Fiji Indo Fijian Rugby Union was held in Lautoka last night.
