Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) will be the team to beat in the inaugural RES Fiji Masters 10s tournament that gets underway tomorrow at Prince Charles Park, Nadi.

It was confirmed that 12 teams are competing in the one-day event with attractive prizes at stake.

Last night, Nadi Friends of Rugby launched the tournament at the Big Bula Waterpark in Denarau.

Co-ordinator Epineri Susu said the idea to host the tournament came after the Big Bula Lions and the Nawaka Oldies returned from the Darwin Masters 10s tournament in March. The tournament was won by the Big Bula Lions  Club.

Other teams in the competition include Ropate Kauvesi led-Viti Legends laced with former Fijian rugby stars along with Police and Nawaka.

“We’re very fortunate with the support of our major sponsor RES an Australian based-company with its director Kim Healy who stepped in to help us,” Susu said.

“Partial proceeds from the tournament will go towards helping junior rugby in schools and villages.”

He indicated the tournament would have a carnival like atmosphere for families to attend and enjoy.

“We will have bouncy castles, face painting and food being sold at the ground so everyone’s free to join the fun.

“ It’s also a reunion of former players who used to play together or against each other, a time also to recognise their contribution to Fiji rugby as a whole and to where it is today.”

The main winner will pocket $3000.

Susu thanked their co-sponsors like Gold FM, Bula FM, BLK, Premium Signcrafters, Coca-Cola, Fiji Water, Big Bula Water Park, Sheraton Fiji, Yees Cold Storage, Bank South Pacific, Coastal Rental Cars, and Fiji Sun.

The entry fee is $3 for adults, $1 for children and the bouncy castle is free.
