Police Blue are in a tough pool in the third leg of the Super Sevens Series to be staged at Ratu Ganilau Park in Savusavu on March 19-20.

In what has been dubbed as the pool of death the series leaders are going to face Ratu Filise, Wardens and an invitational team from the Vanua Levu.

Series coordinator Sale Sorovaki said last night they have dropped the two last teams in the series to accommodate two invitational teams from Vanua Levu.

“We’ve dropped Dominion Brothers and Bukuya,” he said.

Police White top Pool B followed by Uluinakau, Eastern Saints and BLK Stallions.

Raiwasa Taveuni lead a tough Pool C with Army, Tabadamu and a second invitational team from Vanua Levu.

Jerry Tuwai’s LAR Barbarians are in Pool D along with Wadigi Salvos, Nawaka and Fire.

Police Blue claimed their second tournament in the series after beating Police White 26-7 in the Cup final. The win has seen the Keponi Paul-captained side extend their lead on the Series table.

When approached Paul said they were going to try and maintain their campaign by winning the third leg in Savusavu so they can secure the Series title and the $20,000 prizemoney.

“We’ll go back and work on areas that we need to improve on before we’ll play in next week’s Nawaka tournament before heading to Savusavu,” he said.

When asked on the secret of Police success in the series, Paul said, it was because of their spiritual upbringing.

“Our secret recipe was our trust in God. It was God who has been the source of our strength.”

Paul said they were grateful to the support of the Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu who was at the ground.

“And we always want to thank the Police family around the country for their support and this win is also dedicated to them as well,” he added.
