FORMER Fiji sevens rep Jasa Veremalua showed his experience and skills to help Hideaway Hurricanes clinch the Serua rugby 7s title.

Hideaway defeated neighbour Namatakula One 15-12 in an even encounter at the Ratu Latianara College grounds last Friday.

Veremalua, a non-travelling reserve for the Vodafone Fiji sevens team to the Glasgow and London tournaments showed the tonne of experience he had which proved to be a valuable asset to Hideaway.

Both teams were locked 12-all at fulltime. However, Namatakula was penalised in their own territory in which a kickable penalty was awarded to Hideaway.

In the semi-final Hideaway defeated Nakorovou 17-0 while Namatakula edged Uluinakau 12-7. Naviti Resort beat Nadruku Barbarians 15-10 in the plate final while Island Babas thumped Namatakula Two 21-0 to clinch the bowl competition.

Tournament official Akuila Vueti said they were impressed with the success of the tournament.

"We're pleased with the outcome of this tournament," he said.

"Hideaway Hurricanes won and congratulations to them."

He said the local Serua Rugby Union teams impressed at the two-day tournament.

"We had some big teams competing and it is a huge exposure to most of our local players."

Another big sevens tournament in the West this weekend will be the Yamacia 7s to be held at Vatureba Park in Navosa on Wednesday and Thursday.

Participating teams will battle for the $10,000 at stake in the two-day tournament.
