IT was a hectic four days of rugby sevens in a torrid western heat that failed to dampen the spirit and passion of the 2000 plus players who came out in full numbers with supporters to be part of the first ever Fiji’s Nadroga Sevens held in Lawaqa Park-Sigatoka.

The tournament was only possible through the support from all teams who participated and the fans who came out in numbers to cheer for their teams.

Highlights of the tournament were the U13 and U15 Grades accompanied by their parents on day one with huge followings and set the pace for the remaining three days.

Shown below are the qualified teams to the McDonald’s Fiji’s Coral Coast Sevens 2020.

Big teams like Wardens Gold, Uluinakau, Army Green, Red Diamond and Rt Filise to name a few.
