The Chinese and Tuvalu national rugby sevens team will be part of the Ram Sami Nasinu 7s tournament that will be held on Friday and Saturday.
Nasinu rugby union president Paula Biu says the inclusion of international teams will boost the tournament locally and across the region.
“The China national sevens team will feature four teams, two for the men’s division and two for the women and this is to prepare themselves for Asian rugby sevens tournaments. Tuvalu men’s rugby team will also be part of the competition.”
Local sevens giants like Ratu Filise, First Light, Uluinakau, Police and Wardens will be part of the competition as well.
Biu says the tournament gives local players the opportunity to showcase their talents and be recognized by national selectors.
“This tournament also gives a chance for other players to give their best shot to represent Fiji in the World Series.”
The winner for the men’s competition walks away with $5000 and the runner up gets $2000, whereas the women’s champion gets $2000 and runner-up gets $1000.
The tournament will be held at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.
