Organisers happy

THE Fijian Cup touch rugby tournament which ended at Prince Charles Park in Nadi yesterday proved to be a success.

The two-day event attracted teams from New Zealand and Samoa.

Outcast from New Zealand won the men's title.

The side defeated 2 Fresh from Suva in the final.

The 2 Fresh won the women's title beating New Zealand Marlborough in the final.

Both winning teams received $7500.

The 2 Fresh head coach Jack Tulivou said the tournament served as a learning curve for the local players. Tulivou said 2 Fresh had planned a tour to Brisbane next year but the idea had been shelved because the 2018 Fijian Cup would again be hosted at Prince Charles Park.

"There were seven men's teams and six women's teams that participated in this year's event," Tulivou said.

"We are hoping for a bigger and better championship in 2018."
