THE Yamacia 7s side will be sporting black ribbons at the Jezreel 7s tournament which starts tomorrow at Welagi on Taveuni.

The gesture is to mark the passing away of one of the club's supporters Filipe Tuivuna, who went missing last Friday and was found dead in his cassava plantation on Monday.

The team is saddened by the loss but determined to perform to the best of their abilities.

Club president David Dakuitoga said former national sevens rep Vereniki Goneva would feature alongside current national sevens reps Donasio Ratubuli and Semi Kunatani.

"The boys have been struck with news of our so called 'Koko Filipe's passing," he said.

"The past week of training has been gruesome.

"However, the presence of our mentor Goneva and our local stars Donasio and Kunatani have boosted the boys morale for a good showdown at Taveuni."

Yamacia would be up against strong opposition from the North along with top teams from Viti Levu such as Red Rock and defending champion Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians.

The tournament starts tomorrow but the week-long carnival started on Saturday and would continue until this Saturday to mark the conclusion of the tournament.
