The Hideaway Hurricanes aim to overcome all odds at the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament on March 24-25 at the ANZ Stadium.

Team manager Moape Tuinuku said having 15s players in the squad will not affect their performance.

“We haven’t done any serious training since most of our players are engaged in the 15s competition,”Tuinuku said.

“We will be moving into camp soon and hopefully things will just move on from there. We have a mixture of young and experienced players.”

The Coral Coast team have been participating in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s for the past five years.

“The team started participating in the Marist 7s in 2011.

“We are lucky to have a few trainers from the champion Nadroga rugby team assisting us in our training,” he added.

He said the Marist 7s was a great platform for new players to showcase their talents.

“The Marist 7s always produce stars for the future. Like the Hideaway Hurricanes, First Light Taveuni is a team to watch after they defied all odds and won the 2017 Coral Coast Sevens in Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka in January.

“I would like to thank the Fiji Hideaway Resort and Spa general manager and the staff for all their endless support towards the team for the past few years,” Tuinuku added.
