Spain National 7s team is the first international outfit to confirm their participation for the inaugural West 7s Rugby Series.

Spain is aiming to regain their status as a core team at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on February 26-27.

West 7s Rugby Series tournament coordinator, Biu Tadranu said with some of the top local sevens sides already registered, Spain’s inclusion gives a further boost and adds excitement to the tournament for sevens rugby fans.

Tadranu highlights that Spain’s interest in the West 7s means that international teams “recognize the value and the high standard of local sevens rugby competitions in Fiji.”

“It also means that the West 7s Series has been successful in not only attracting top local 7s teams but also overseas national teams. This is only the beginning for the West 7s Rugby Series tournaments’ planned for 2016.”

The tournament will be played in three categories- men’s, men’s under-20 and women’s. 68 teams are expected to compete over two-days.

“We have places still available for teams that want to be part of the tournament and we call on local teams to register their interest at the earliest as the deadline is fast approaching,” Tadranu said.
