Women's sevens draw interest

THE Fiji Women's Rugby Union resumes their sevens competition this weekend.

And they are anticipating the participation of a shadow Fijiana side.

Most of the players in the Fijiana side are part of clubs that play in the Suva-Nausori corridor.

Union president Paulini Tamatasasa said the use of players in the Fijiana side would give the clubs a chance to expose some new talents.

She said the sport was slowly becoming popular and this was evident when they hosted the East versus West Challenge in Ra two weeks ago.

"We have seen the girls become more confident and more skilful," Tamatasasa said.

"Their fitness has improved and they are eager to compete and since the international sevens season is about to start, we are also keen to start our local sevens competition."

She said their one-day 10s competition on Saturday was a preview to the sevens competition.

"We had the Marist Sea Hawks, Striders and Central Chiefs in the 10s competition.

"Mystic Knights and Eastern Eagles were not able to compete because they didn't have numbers but have promised to be part of the sevens competition."
