Wardens defended their Fiji Bitter Mokani 7s title after defeating Police 31-14 at Ratu Ravuama Vunivalu Memorial Primary School in Tailevu yesterday.

Wardens received $3000, Police $1000, while in the women’s competition, the Sea Hawks got $1000 for defeating Central Chiefs 31-10 in the final. Chiefs returned home $500 richer.

It was a tough two days of competitions but organiser Filimoni Cakobau has deemed the tournament a success.

“It’s getting tougher every year,” Cakobau said.

“We had 32 teams compared to 28 last year and this is the first time women are taking part.

“We are glad that we have opened the tournament up to the women as well, because of that the villagers were really interested to watch. So we expect a lot of teams next year.”

With the aim to make the tournament bigger and better Cakobau said the organising committee will have to meet to discuss ways to cater for the large amount of teams next year and to make it a big event.

“We will sit together on Monday and discuss the weaknesses and strengths so we can make it an even bigger and better tournament next year,” he said.

“But overall the tournament was a success, and we are looking forward to a bigger and better tournament next year.” Edited by Osea Bola
