Marist 7s Rugby Tournament starts
The biggest 7s tournament of the country starts today at various grounds but centred at the FMF Dome, Laucala Bay, Suva. There are around 128 teams altogether with Auckland Marist from New Zealand, one of the overseas teams participating. The tournament was first held in 1976 during the glory days of the Hong Kong 7s tournament, the only major international 7s tournament at the time. This will be the 30th anniversary of the tournament. During the games, other events are usually held during the intervals so it should be an interesting visit for tourists here in Suva.
