Top teams around the country are expected to light up this weekend’s 36th Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

Nawaka Rugby Club president and tournament organizer, Eparama Sailo says preparations are coming along well and crowd should expect some good grassroots rugby to be displayed this weekend.

He says top teams like Police, Army, Tabadamu and Raiwasa Taveuni will be participating at this week’s tournament.

He also says they hope new talents will be unearthed in this tournament and also provide a pathway for players to get into the national training squad.
