A new winner will be crowned at the 10th Uluinakau Rugby Sevens which ends today at Prince Charles Park, Nadi.

This is after defending champions Tabadamu opted to compete at the Waimanu 7s in Nausori.

Keponi Paul’s Police White will face Warwick Ratu Filise in one of the quarterfinals this morning.

Current Fiji Airways Fi­jian 7s squad member Ru­siate Matai led the Police White team in three victo­ries including a convincing 26-0 win over NYB in the final pool play.

The side is laced with the regulars Belasio Vuki­wai, Livai Ikanikoda, Kini Douglas, Inia Rokomatu and Meli Kurisaru.

Warwick Ratu Filise with the likes of Ifereimi Tovilevu, Leveni Tani, Me­sake Seavula and Sakiusa Drainumolea were in good form.

Host Uluinakau Babas will meet Veilomani Com­bo, after it became the first team to book a spot in the quarterfinals after winning over Dratabu 24-0, Mala Young Boys 24-5 and Na­korokula 28-0 respectively.

In the other matches, Va­gadra is another surprise package who has emerged as Pool B winners upset­ting Saunaka McDonald’s as they face Yamacia.
