Police National wants to end sevens drought

Maciu Malo
Saturday, April 12, 2014

POLICE National is on a mission to stamp its mark in the local 7s scene.

Coach Manasa Bari said the side had failed to win any major 7s event for the past years and the Nasese-based side had set its sight on the lucrative $10,000 top prizemoney on offer at the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s this afternoon.

Laced with star players such as flyer Samisoni Viriviri, Ulaiasi Lawavou, Mitieli Nacagilevu and Apisalome Waqatabu, the side is optimistic of winning the top award.

The side thumped Naviti Resort 33-0, Lami 24-0 and outclassed Momi Tigers 17-5 to earn their spot in the elimination stages this morning.

"We haven't won any major titles so far and we are here to stamp our dominance," said Bari.

"We are committed to making our mark and we will do our best to win the tournament.

"We are aware that all teams also have the same goal at this tournament and we will fight hard to fulfil our goal."

Bari said the players had been urged not to underestimate their opponents in the elimination stages.

"We will treat all games as the final knowing the elimination stages is a do-or-die battle."
