ONE new club will feature in the Suva Touch Rugby competition while two clubs are making a return after two years.

Tuirara Flyers from Makoi will make their debut in the competition today at Furnival Park in Toorak.

Suva Touch Association president Charles Cleary said Metra and Viking were making a comeback after a two-year lapse.

"We have 10 clubs this season and most of them are represented in all categories — under-20, Men's, Mixed, Women's, Men's over 30s," he said.

Cleary said defending champions Raiwaqa Flyers would find the going tough this year and whether they retained their title or not would be determined when the competition starts.

"They will find it hard this year because of the exposure other teams had at the international tournament in Nadi last year in September.

"It will be quite interesting to watch what happens this year and competition should be hitting another level this year."

Cleary reminded players to bring their A game to the competition.
