THE official launch of the 31st Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s will be held in Nadi next Thursday.

The launch will coincide with the presentation of the cheque by major sponsor Paradise Beverages at the Nalagi House which is the chiefly residence of Tui Nawaka, Ratu Asaeli Driu Naevo.

Nawaka Rugby Club president Jioji Kinisi said the launch would start with a traditional welcoming ceremony followed by entertainment and other formalities.

Kinisi said they had already started receiving entries from clubs for the two-day tournament.

"There are limited entries so teams wishing to participate in the event must register early to avoid disappointment," he said.

Nawaka Village is a stronghold of rugby in Nadi producing many national reps such as Sailosi Nawavu, Manasa Qoro, Savenaca Aria, Esala Labalaba, Apisai Nagata, the late Sainivalai Laulau, Lalai Driu, Aminiasi Nava, Apisai Naevo and Semisi Naevo.

The Nawaka Rugby Club is supporting Fiji's bid to host one of the tournaments of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and will be partnering with the Fijifor7s campaign.

The Nawaka 7s will be played at Prince Charles Park from February 23-24 ahead of the Las Vegas 7s from March 2-4 and the Vancouver 7s from March 10-11.

Kinisi said this year's tournament would unearth some new talents who could push their way into the national squad.
