The Tim Walsh-coached Aussie Pearls  was  crowned the Crest Na Iri Trophy winner at the 2014 Fiji Coral Coast 7’s tournament at the Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka yesterday.

The Pearls proved too strong beating Serevi Selects 19-7 in the final.

Walsh was not surprised with the win.

“I expected to come here and win after training hard and playing well,” said Walsh. “What worked for us was we were clinical and be very detailed in our performance. It was a fantastic semifinal as well.”

In the first Cup semifinal the Serevi Select side defeated defending champions TFL Fijiana 12-0 while Aussie Pearls beat Marist Sea Hawks 17-12.

Other results: Plate – PNG 26 Redlands 15, Bowl – NZ Raiders 29 New Caledonia 5, Shield – Sydney Fiji Ranadi 24 Lady Babas 12.
