FIJIANS based in Sydney, Australia are planning to organise a 7s tournament on Fiji Day.

Combined with the Bula Australia, the Fijian Sydney Committees are hoping to unite the Pacific islanders together to commemorate Fiji Day, which falls in the month of October.

"Yes it is the first time as a joint venture between Bula Australia and the Fiji Day Sydney committee for us to run a 7s tournament," said Nasa Leivere of Bula Australia TRY Limited.

With sevens rugby, one of the main sport in Fiji, Leivere felt if they wanted the Fijians in Australia to experience sevens at its best on the date which the Republic of the Fiji Islands commemorate its Independence Day.

"We want to bring people of the Pacific and different races together and share the same passion of sevens rugby and celebrate the Independence of Fiji."

The winner of the event walks away with $20,000 (AUD), the runner-up pockets $10,000 (AUD) while prize will be at stake for the plate and bowl winners.

"He said they had invited interested clubs to contact the organisers on or call Adriu Rinakama on +61405651169 or Nasa on - +61401527302.
