WESTERN schools have overcome their disappointment and organised a separate sevens tournament to cater for their players.

This after it was revealed they would not be part of the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union 7s tournament that will be played at the Suva Grammar School tomorrow.

The Western Zone II Secondary Schools Rugby Union has organised their own tournament which would be played at Prince Charles Park in Nadi tomorrow.

Known as the Western Zone II Secondary Schools 7s it will feature 32 teams in total from 15 schools.

Vice president West Lionel Danford said lack of finances prevented them from participating in the FSSRU 7s.

"We are not participating in the FSSRU 7s tournament due the cost of traveling to Suva," he said.

"Top teams in the West will be playing (in the West Zone II Secondary Schools 7s) — Ratu Navula, Ba Pro, Natabua including all our Indian dominated schools like Tilak and Nadi Sangam.

"Yasawa High U19 will also be part of the 7s tournament."

Danford said they were expecting to see a lot of raw talent and some players could be standout players like those from the past years.

"Ratu Navula College has produced 7s players like Vatemo Ravouvou, Samu Saqiwa who are now in the Vodafone 7s squad to name a few."
