Paradise Cove Yasawa Stingers showed consistency to win the Veiyasana 7s tournament at Churchill Park, Lautoka last Saturday.
Tournament coordinator Ligavici Tuirabe Junior commended the Stingers after beating Warden West 21-7 in the Cup final.
“Players like Viliame Qio, Sairusi Mali and Ovini Tuidraki were impressive.
“If these players keep up the effort, we could see them playing for the national team in future,’’ Tuirabe said.
The side won $2,500 while Wardens collected $800.
Stingers beat Western Suburbs 17-0 in the quarterfinal and later edged Islands Electric Bainivanua 12- 7 in the semifinal.
“The Islanders made a huge impact on the organisers and spectators after they defeated the star-studded Suva team, Tabadamu 22-0 in pool play. Stingers won Bowl and Plate at the Martintar 7s and Lomavata 7s respectively and they have stepped up again.”
He acknowledges Vodafone Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan for allowing the side to compete at the Nacula 7s.
“Apart from the time constraints and teams withdrawing in the 11th hour, the tournament was a success,” Tuirabe said.
Yamacia won the Plate final after defeating Western Suburbs 10-5 and Gaunavou Nadi won the Bowl final beating Wadigi 27-0.
