A total of eight teams had to be turned away from competing in the 28th Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s, this weekend.
Tournament Coordinator, Mataiasi Nabou says this was due to late registration.
“Unfortunately we had to turn some teams back when our deadline ended at 4pm on last Friday. A total of eight teams being turned back but we are still crossing our fingers they can still come and participate since more teams are also claiming their refund that they won’t be participating in this 28th Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s, 2015.”
Organizers were overwhelmed by the number of teams that registered for the tournament.
Sixty-four teams will compete in this year’s tournament.
The launching of the tournament will be held tomorrow at the Tui Nawaka’s residence in Nalagi.
The Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s will be held on Friday and Saturday at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.
