Boost for Red Rock

THE Red Rock 7s team will compete in four overseas tournaments in the space of two months.

Team manager Malakai Yamaivava said the side was confirmed for the Fitness First Central Coast 7s which would be held on October 25 and 26 in Australia.

"The Central Coast is the last one for the tour." Before that, we will compete in three other tournaments.

"We have a lot of young and new boys in the squad and we want them to experience some local and international action," he said.

The side would compete in the Rewa Delta 7s tournament later this month and then travel to Ba for a tournament next month.

"The local tournaments would give these new boys good confidence before we depart for the overseas tour."

Meanwhile, international businessman Bobby Naicker handed over a new set of apparel to the team earlier this week.

Naicker is a former Fiji citizen who resides in Canada and owns a chain of bars and restaurants.

He also sponsors rugby league teams in Vancouver and said he often came to Fiji with sets of jerseys for a few under privileged teams.

"We have beer in Vancouver called Fiji Blond which has an emblem of a Fijian running with a rugby ball," he said.

"All the proceeds from the sales of that beer go towards jerseys and kits for rugby league or rugby teams both in Vancouver and Fiji."

Naicker said he wanted to contribute towards the development of the sport in the country.

"Rugby is Fiji's national sport and we must maintain its status in the country and we can do that through support. I will continue to support local rugby teams in the country for as long as I can."
