THE Royal Destiny 7s club will play their first game together as a team at the SCW 7s tournament today.

The Mead Road-based club was only formed 14 weeks ago and is raring to make their debut in the local rugby scene.

The side is using concept of rugby, community and chaplaincy in their bid to become a successful side.

Rugby Plus national co-ordinator, Lasarusa Nasenaivalu who is also helping the side said the team was not looking for a win in their first tournament.

"These are school dropouts and unemployed youths from Mead Road, Lovoni, Namadi and some are from Jittu Estate," he said.

"When the club was formed, we had only five boys but now we have more than 20 and their main focus this weekend is not to win but to get exposure and some game time."

Nasenaivalu said the club was a community-based club and would like to engage with the community as much as they could.

"They have already cleaned up at the Home of Compassion, cleaned drains around Nabua Secondary School and also engaged in other activities.

"We don't want them to be idle and into crime and drugs and we want them to be useful to the community."

Nasenaivalu said the team was hoping a good Samaritan would come forward and sponsor the side.
