Vodafone Fijian 7s head coach Gareth Baber and trainer Naca Cawanibuka will be at the Tiliva Sevens tournament in Kadavu this weekend.

A total of 24 teams will participate in the two-day tournament which starts on Friday and culminating on Saturday.

Tiliva Sevens spokesperson Lynda Tabuya confirmed this yesterday.

“I’m happy to confirm that Gareth Baber has confirmed that he will be in Tiliva and will be accompanied by trainer Naca Cawanibuka, so right now they are figuring out their logistics,” Tabuya said.

 

BLK steps in

Beyond Limits Known (BLK) will provide outfits for the seven referees and 24 match balls for the participating teams at the Tiliva Sevens.

BLK director commercial and marketing Liga Gukisuva handed over match balls and outfits to the tournament organisers in Suva.

“The value of this sponsorship is close to $3000. The attire comes out from one of the best fabrics that we have to showcase on the rural maritime area what we got and also to provide a platform for the players to be in their best form.

“Over the years we see names coming out from the rural competition. These are raw talents given the right nurturing, the right training and the right mentoring coaches in a very short term, they will become world class players,” Gukisuva said.

Tabuya acknowledged BLK for the great support they have offered for the tournament. This is BLK’s first partnership with Tiliva Sevens.

 

Villagers’ Ready

Villagers in Tiliva and those from nearby villages are all gearing up for this weekend, says Tabuya.

“There is an air of excitement on the island. They are supporting this so they have all converged at the village and are all looking forward to welcoming the teams. They have been fishing all week and they know the request coming from people in the main land, getting the grog ready and there will be a traditional welcoming ceremony for the teams as they arrive in Tiliva,” Tabuya added.
