THE 2014 Mount Saint Mary's 7s tournament was launched in Nadi yesterday.

The tournament which will be played on October 24-25 will have a total prize purse of $10,000.

A total of 64 teams are being targeted and there will also be categories for women's and veteran's clubs as well.

Douglas Fong, the secretary of the Mount Saint Mary's 7s committee said the tournament would be played at Prince Charles Park.

Fong said players welfare and safety would be a priority at the tournament.

"There will be ample rest period, ice bath and shelter will be provided to allow the highest level of performance," he said.

"We would like to thank our Parish Priest Father Rafaele Qalovi for giving the opportunity to our committee of the Saint Joseph area to organise the tournament.

"We are also grateful to our volunteers and members of Mount Saint Mary's and the Saint Joseph worker members who have put their hands together for a robust and exciting tournament."

Nakovocake won the tournament in 2011. Red Rock won it in 2012 and Tale Barbarians won it last year.

"We are currently in negotiation with sponsors and partners and look forward to providing the best entertainment for our audience," Fong said.

"It will be free admission for children under the age of 12 years.

"In conjunction with our partners we will launch a text promotion in two weeks' time."

Registration for the tournament is $450.

The sponsors and partners of the tournament are Nadi Town Council, Marist Rugby Club, Fiji Airways, Smugglers Cove Resort, DRUA/One Proof Design, Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, The Fiji Times and ACC Quantum Energy.
