Update: 2:17PM THREE top Fiji 7s teams will not feature in next week’s 42nd Fiji Bitter Marist 7s in Suva.

Uluinakau, Hideaway Hurricanes, and Cross of Victory will not play because they failed to pay their registration fees on time. 

This was revealed by the organisers today during Pacific Energy’s sponsorship announcement of $10,000 today. 

It was also announced that part of the sponsorship, in terms of fuel, would help rural teams compete in the tournament.
