THE two-day Nadroga Rugby Union (NRU) 10s tournament, which started at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka yesterday, attracted an overwhelming response.

For the tournament the NRU has adopted the French Rugby Union competition format classing teams in the tier one as the Top 16 and the tier two as the Pro D2.

NRU president Tiko Matawalu said there were no sponsors for the event.

The former national rep said they were relying on team registrations and entry fees to substitute for the total prize purse.

"There are 16 teams in the Top 16 competition and 20 teams in the Pro D2," Matawalu said.

"This is the concept we use in our club competition. The tournament serves as preparation for the upcoming club competition and the provincial competition."

Police is the favourite in the Top 16 division.

The pool matches will continue today followed by the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals. The winner of the Top 16 will receive $1500 while the runner-up will get $500.

The winner of the Pro D2 will collect $1000 while runner-up will get $300.

Admission is $5 (adults) and $3 (children).
