7s tourney cancelled over no show

THE Brotherhood 7s that was to have been held in Ra on Saturday was called off because of the poor response.

Organisers said many teams were engaged with prior commitments and could not compete in the tournament at the Ra Sports Ground.

However, chief organiser Wame Ratadai said they would host the tournament on another date.

"Only about 15 teams turned up on the day," he said.

"Other teams said they were busy with prior commitments and so we decided to call off the tournament and host it another day.

"But the interest is there and teams are eager to compete in a tournament in their province."

Ratadai said no date had been confirmed but added it would be a fundraiser for a school project.

"We cannot have it next week because the Nawaka 7s is on, and we cannot have it the week after that because it is Easter and following that is the Coca-Cola Games.

"Meanwhile, we have a tournament scheduled for May 1 and 2 — the New Vision Bure 7s — which will be held at the Wainibuka Secondary School grounds."
