DEPUTY Commissioner of Police, Rusiate Tudravu wants his rugby 7s players to be disciplined at all times at the 2018 Fiji Bitter Marist 7s which starts at the ANZ Stadium in Suva today.

“We have set our aim for this year which is to win three major tournaments in the country which includes the Coral Coast 7s which we have won and now we are aiming to win the Marist 7s and Nawaka 7s. The players who would be wearing our rugby 7s uniform are part of the community policing and they play an important role in the community,” Tudravu said.

“We do not want the team to play with pride of a champion especially after winning the Coral Cost 7s as we want them to be humble on and off the field.

“The players are also required to play professional rugby displaying their talent for the fans and play structured rugby.

“The players are fortunate to wear that Police rugby 7s jersey and we are confident that they would make everyone proud.”

The team received a timely boost from the Tau Sports and SportsWorld which sponsored the team’s uniforms for the two-day tournament.

“The players should be disciplined on and off the field because discipline is the backbone of all the success,” he added.
