Striders in top form

Maciu Malo
Saturday, April 12, 2014

STRIDERS is highly tipped to win the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s women's title at Prince Charles Park this afternoon.

The side was impressive in yesterday's pool games thumping Mystic Knights 26-0 and later defeated Marist Seahawks 12-0 to advance to the elimination stages.

But the side will meet tougher opposition in Nadi Blazers and Nadro Stallions in today's do-or-die clash.

Tournament organiser Mataiasi Nabau said the competition among the women's teams was a joy to watch.

He said most players were well versed with the rules of the game while some displayed good 7s rugby skills.

Nabau said most of the players had the material to be in the Fijiana team provided they have good coaching and training.

"Its exciting to see women battling against each other in the rugby field," he said.

"It will be interesting to see them perform as the battle intensifies in the elimination stages."

The elimination starts at 9am.
