Ratu Filise Yellow and Ratu Filise Blues shared the $6000 first prizemoney at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka on Saturday.

The Namatakula teams decided not to play in the final after they won their semifinal matches during the Cuvu Collegion Rugby 7s tournament.

Ratu Filise Blue beat Fire 17-5 while Ratu Filise Yellow edged Nasaunivalu 10-7.

Event coordinator, Tiko Matawalu said both teams agreed not to play the final.

Matawalu was overwhelmed with the interest from teams such as Suva Grammar School who traveled from the capital to be part of the competition.

“For them to come all that way jto come and play shows the interest they have,” he said.

“This is our first year and our second tournament and we are looking forward to more of this next year.”

He said there were no sponsors for the tournament and was hopeful that sponsors could come out next year to support the event.

Meanwhile, the Lautoka Crusaders team won the women’s final beating Nadi Blazers 19-8.

The Under19 final was won by the Ravuka Sharks beating Gaunavou Nadi 5-0.
