Lautoka revives event

THE Lautoka Rugby Union will be reviving the Lautoka Sugar 7s this month.

Lautoka was a powerhouse in the abbreviated code in the 1980s and 1990s with clubs such as Namoli, Batiri, Vuda and Topline dominating the local 7s tournaments.

LRU secretary Sefanaia Scholte said during the last executive meeting they decided to organise the Lautoka Sugar 7s which was missing on their calendar for a number of years.

Scholte said a total of $5000 would be up for grabs at the tournament which would be played at Churchill Park.

He said they would be targeting 48 teams.

"Part of the total prizemoney has come through gifts," Scholte said.

"There has been no major 7s tournaments in Lautoka lately so this is a chance for the teams to participate at Churchill Park which is one of the best grounds in the country.

"We expect the Lautoka clubs to come out in full force to support the event."

The teams will be divided into eight pools of four. The winner will receive $3000.
