The officials of the Nakaiolo Brothers rugby 7s club are focused on developing and exposing young talents from their island home of Levuka village in Nabukelevu, Kadavu.

The team are looking forward to make their debut at the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament which is from March 24-25 at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

Marist Rugby Club president Lawrence Tikaram confirmed yesterday that the Kadavu based- side were the first team out of the 64 to register for the two-day tournament.

Head coach Amini Laveta told SUNsports that they are not only setting their focus on local 7s tournaments but eyeing to play in international competitions as well.

“The team will be participating in the Uluinakau 7s tournament this Saturday as build- up to the Marist 7s before departing the country to compete in five rugby sevens tournaments in Sydney, Australia,” Laveta said.

“We have brought some talents from the island to compete in the bigger competition in Suva.

“It’s about time to expose these raw talents and bring them out of the village.

“This is the first time for the team to play in local tournaments in Viti Levu and tour overseas as well.”

Laveta said they have young talented players in the island which they would develop with the vision that they in return would assist in the development of the village.
