The Red Rock team of Qauia has chal­lenged all other teams stat­ing their only aim is to win the Nawaka 7s ti­tle this week­end. Team coach Lote Rasiga says they will be trav­el­ing down to­mor­row. He said even though they don’t have big names in his squad, he has faith in his play­ers. “So far, so good. The boys have been pre­par­ing well and we are look­ing for­ward to the games. “The team has been train­ing at Jonny Singh Park so when we go down we are not only go­ing to par­tic­i­pate; we are go­ing there to win,” he said.

“Most of th­ese play­ers are new so this will be their first ma­jor lo­cal game. I don’t have big names in my squad but I al­ways de­velop new play­ers mainly from Qauia. Rasiga said de­spite not hav­ing the num­ber of ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers as the other teams do, he be­lieves that to be­come a good team, good prepa­ra­tion is needed. “We have been do­ing our best in prepa­ra­tion for the tour­na­ment. We al­ways give our 100 per cent.

“It will take time to de­velop th­ese play­ers to reach a stage, but I be­lieve they will per­form and we will see them in the Nawaka 7s in Nadi this week­end.” The War­dens Gold 7s team is the cur­rent ti­tle holder of the Nawaka 7s ti­tle. Edited by Jonathan Bryce
