The Raiwasa Taveuni Rugby club will lodge a police report tomorrow after their players were assaulted by some Police White players during the quarter-finals of the Nawaka 7s yesterday.
Mesake Varo and Watisoni Sevutia were red-carded for throwing punches against the Raiwasa Taveuni players while four others were shown yellow cards.
Raiwasa Taveuni Manager Seba Vulakoro says they are still collecting details. He adds they are also awaiting the Fiji Rugby Union's decision.
Acting Police Commissioner Rusiate Tudravu has suspended the Police White 7s team until further notice and has directed an internal investigation to be conducted.
Tudravu says they are allowing these officers to play under their community policing concept in reaching out to the youths. He adds he does not condone police officers wearing police jerseys to be involved in situations such as this.
Meanwhile, Fiji Rugby Union CEO John O’Connor says they are waiting for the report from the Nawaka 7s committee.
He says the issue should have been dealt with according to the Nawaka 7s Tournament Terms of Participation. O’Connor adds they are also reviewing the incident before making any decisions.
