Sevens rugby is making a return to the Ratu Emeri School ground at Kubulau, Bua on October 26-27.

Over 1000 people are expected to turn up to watch the Ratu Emeri School Sev­ens tournament that last hosted a ma­jor rugby event many years ago.

Prominent rugby stars from Bua like William Ryder and Rupeni Caucaun­ibuca will be the guests at the two-day tournament.

School manager Josaia Ravunicagi said money raised would be used to car­ry out renovation works in the school.

“This is the first time that rugby sev­ens is played at the ground and we are proud to bring the people of Bua to­gether,” he said.

“One of the main reasons for organ­ising the tournament is to support the school’s projects.

“This tournament is a pathway for many of our young people to gain in­ternational recognition as well.

“We have a huge response from the lo­cals clubs as 16 men rugby teams have confirmed participation.”

Ravunicagi said such tournaments will nurture young rugby players to become the next Ryder and Caucaun­ibuca.

All teams wishing to take part to call Ravunicagi on 7474270. Closing date for registration is October 17. Winner win $2500, second runner up $1000.
