HIDEAWAY Hurricanes rugby sevens club got away to a perfect start in yesterday's Lomary Parish 7s tournament at the Lomary Secondary School ground.

The side defeated Vunibau 12-0 to kick off their title campaign on a winning note in their opening game.

Tournament official Mitieli Savu said the side looked to be the one to beat when the tournament continues today.

Ratu Filise did not get the start it expected, losing its first pool match to Pacific Harbour 0-5.

Former Flying Fijians and Fiji Bati rep Alipate Tani did not feature for the Namatakula-based club in the opening game. Saint John's Lomary One also started on a winning note while their second stringed side drew 5-all with Naviti Resort One.

"It's a good start to the tournament and we're looking forward to more entertaining games tomorrow (today)," Savu said.

"Hideaway Hurricanes won their first game, they got a strong combination so the challenge will be on them to defend the title."

The winner walks away $2000 richer while the runner-up pockets $1000.
