The Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union is hoping to kick start its season on a high note with a 7s tournament tomorrow.

The Secondary Schools 7s will only feature teams from the Eastern Division because it would too costly for the schools from the West.

Union president Napolioni Silatolu said the one-day tournament will be full of action.

"Competition will be played in the under-15, U17 and U19 grades," he said.

"All games will be really competitive and some upsets are expected."

Silatolu thanked a former national rep who wished to be an anonymous sponsor.

"This former national rep was a product of secondary schools rugby and he does not want his details to be revealed.

"He gave $5000 for the tournament and we thank him for his gesture.

"Digicel have also come forward to support us and BSP has also shown interest."

The tournament starts at 8am at the Suva Grammar School grounds.
