The Joeli Rasekalai captained- Radisson Blu Resort 7s team are eager to make their debut at the Fiji Bitter Nawaka Sevens at Prince Charles Park, Nadi on Friday.

Team secretary Ilaisa Vunakelo said the main objective of their participation is to promote team work and to showcase some of their talented players in the team.

The side have Jack’s Nadi lock forward Eparama Mafi in the forwards.

“This is a young team relatively new to the sevens scene,” Vunakelo said.

“But they are not new to the game of rugby as they played at club and provincial levels as well.”

Vunakelo thanked resort manager Julien Racine, former Nadroga centre Jim Mule and resort management for their faith in the team.

“We’re ready for every team coming our way but we’ll take each game seriously, without a doubt. Our aim is to win every game and eventually create upsets in this tournament.

“We have been preparing for a month now juggling rugby and work.”

The team is coached by former Nadi rugby winger Isoa Vocevoce while former Sabeto Roosters rugby league winger Viliame Raikivi is the trainer.

Meanwhile, tournament organiser Jioji Kinisi said they are working on the pool draws with a total of 68 teams will be taking part in the two-day rugby fiesta with the inclusion of eight Under-19 and eight oldies team.

The tournament starts on Friday at 8am with the finals set for Saturday afternoon.
