FIJI club Tabadamu won the third edition of the Masaku 7s tournament in Nairobi, Kenya over the weekend.

The side, which is made up of former and current national reps, is managed by Vodafone Fiji 7s player Leo Naikasau.

Tabadamu defeated Uganda 36-14 in the final to win the $10,500 prizemoney. The Fijian side proved too good for the Kenyan outfit leading 26-7 at the break. Joeli Lutumailagi scored a hat-trick while Jone Vota and Sitiveni Waqa managed a try each in the showdown.

Tabadamu manager Naikasau said the win did not come easy.

"Our goal of coming here was to win the tournament and we are delighted we achieved our target," the Wardens player told The Star.

Tabadamu team official and supporter Pravin Chand, who brought the players together for this tournament, was overwhelmed with the Kenyan hospitality.

The Fairtrade owner said jam-packed crowd witnessed the three-day tournament.

"The reception was just like what we have in Fiji," Chand told this newspaper.
