Qi­lai Blues from Namosi were the win­ners of the Bowl ti­tle of the Vutia District School Old Schol­ars 7s tour­na­ment at the vil­lage ground yes­ter­day. The Blues edged out a strong Sa­mu­rai Bar­racu­das side 10-7 in the Bowl fi­nal. Speak­ing to SUN­sports yes­ter­day Blues coach Ula­iasi Tanabure said even though this was the first time they par­tic­i­pated in the tour­na­ment he was im­pressed with how far they have pro­gressed. “We came all the way from Namosi to par­tic­i­pate in this tour­na­ment and we are happy with our achieve­ment,” he said. “We had pre­pared well for the games and train­ing was tough be­cause we did not know what kind of teams we were up against. I can say we had some of our sup­port­ers leav­ing the vil­lage early this morn­ing just to come and watch us play to­day and I thank them for that. “Our ex­penses amounted to about $560. That is to come and par­tic­i­pate so the boys pitched in what­ever they could just to get here. We came to the games with an aim and that is to at least take back home some­thing and I’m glad we came and did just that.” Tanabure con­firmed that they would re­turn to de­fend the Bowl ti­tle next year. “We will be pre­par­ing for next year as we hope to im­prove on our next meet. We have dis­cussed that and we will be look­ing for­ward to next year’s games,” he said. In the Plate fi­nal, Stead Rental Waimanu came out 17-14 vic­tors over Ni­uboto Broth­ers.
