The WAF oldies are now targeting to lift the Fiji Classic Golden Oldies title at this weekend’s Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

The Aisea Tuilevu-coached side lifted the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s Oldies Cup last weekend and this week they are pooled alongside Army, Big Bula Lions and Del Air Eagles.

Tuilevu, a former Flying Fijian and Otago Highlanders winger said they expect a tough competition in Suva.

“We were undefeated throughout the Nawaka tournament and that is our aim again for the Marist 7s,” he said.

“We had loopholes in our play but we should be able to iron them out. We have some big names in rugby and we’ve the spirit to play as a team. These players still entertain the crowd with what they were known for during their days.”

The WAF Oldies have former national rugby and 2005 WorldCup Sevens winner Bill Satala, former national sevens forward Samu Saumaisue, former national sevens playmaker and 1997 World Cup Sevens winner Dan Qauqau and former national rugby winger to the 1999 Rugby World Cup Imanueli Tiko.

Meanwhile, Suva Golden Oldies remain the top seed in Pool A alongside Lomary Old Boys, Navatuvula and Lodoni.
