THE 2nd Fiji Bitter Nabukelevu-i-Ra rugby sevens tournament kicked off on a high note today at the Nabukelevu Primary School ground on Kadavu.

Six teams travelled from mainland and 12 were from nearby villages.

The event also received a boost with the attendance of sponsors and some former Fiji national rugby players.

Tournament director Vilikesa Rauca said the competition was fortunate to have renowned teams from the mainland to participate in the competition.

“We are so fortunate to have teams such as the Ratu Filise, Army, BLK Stallions and Tabadamu boosting the competition level and also a big vinaka vakalevu to our sponsors for making this event a success on the first day,” said Rauca.

The second round of pool games will be held tomorrow and the finals on Friday.
