MINOR sevens clubs from the Southern Division will be up against top sevens clubs of the country in the Grassroots 7s tournament today at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

The tournament has been organised by the MH Red Rock 7s team in a bid to give minor clubs exposure to top level competition.

Red Rock manager Malakai Yamaivava said they would field three teams in the tournament, while some other top clubs were confirmed for the one-day tournament.

"We wanted more minor teams to make up 40 teams but we only have 16 so we decided to have a one-day tournament," he said.

"Minor clubs like Nasinu Crusaders, Baba Brothers, Rainbows, Nadawa Young Boys, Bulavou and Wainuqa are confirmed and the furthest travelling side is Bay Drifters from Buca Bay in Vanua Levu.

"Top clubs like Yamacia, First Landing, Tabadamu and Uluinakau Babas are also confirmed."
