THE Fiji Indo Rugby Union is eyeing another 7s tournament next month after the success at the Veiyasana 7s in Lautoka last Saturday.

The Indo Fijian category was staged by the Lautoka Indo Rugby Union in partnership with the Veiyasana 7s organisers at Churchill Park attracting 10 teams.

Uni Babas and Nakasi Highlanders reached the final of the competition.

The match ended in a 5-all draw. Sudden death extra time was played but the scores remained the same after the mandatory period with the teams deciding to share the prize money.

The annual general meeting of the Fiji Indo Rugby Union was held after the tournament.

Fiji Rugby Union development officer Solo Finau was elected as the chairman.

Aaron Philip from Lautoka and Alvin Nair of Suva were elected as Finau's assistants.

Rashid Hussein was elected as the secretary/treasurer while Kelvin Anthony was elected as the media and sponsorship director.

Philip who is also the Lautoka president said a year planner would be drawn up.

He said this would be given to Finau to present to the parent body on their behalf.
