MARIST Seahawks showed why they are regarded as a top team in women's rugby after defeating Nadi Blazers 19-14 to claim the Kinton Cup and the $5000 prizemoney on offer during the Raka 7s yesterday.

Coach Elenoa Kunatuba said there were a few obstacles along the way as they prepared for the tournament.

"We had a number of our players who are members of the national squad and couldn't make it to the tournament so we had got in a few girls to replace them but we're happy with the result," she said.

"To be led by the skipper of the day, Roela Radiniyavuni, was a big boost especially to our new players.

"The girls have been working really hard every day having four to five players coming for training and we had to make do with what we have but I am happy with the girls' performance."

Kunatuba said the next preparation for them was the Marist 7s next year and also to develop their new players as much as they could.

Marist defeated Striders 15-5 in the semi-final and walloped Central Chief 38-0 in the quarter-final.
