Fiji Rugby Union operations manager Sale Sorovaki hailed the third leg of the FRU-sanctioned Fun Flavor Super Sevens series at Churchill Park in Lautoka as a resounding success.

Sorovaki said the three-day event brought positive results to rugby.

“The event was a great success,” he said.

“The level of rugby sevens has continued to grow steadily since the introduction of the Super Sevens series.

“The SSS has a huge impact on all the teams that have participated in the competition.

“We can see the result of SSS’s transition to another level of competition as three new teams, Wadigi Salvo, Eastern Saints and Dominion Brothers, have made it to the Main Cup quarter-finals since the last match at Prince Charles Park. from Nadi, which shows that no. the teams can rest on their laurels.

“The competition brings in players from smaller clubs, which the coaches want to see.

“It shows the competitiveness of the series.”

The former Flying Fijians captain added that the SSS allows seven-man national men’s head coach Ben Gollings to scout potential roughs to take part in the many international assignments planned for the year.

“The tournaments were created to help national rugby sevens teams for both genders prepare for international competitions during the year.

“Whenever we host a seven-a-side tournament in the country, it’s inevitable to discover new talent, but it’s entirely up to the coaches, who they believe are the players who fit their plans.

“And that’s why we have competitions like the SSS.
