The Fiji National Rugby League will hold its first Ra 7s this weekend at the Nabau District School.

The inaugural event’s purpose is to enable the six clubs to familiarize themselves with the new code and more understanding of the games laws.

FNRL development officers have been conducting coaching clinics on the basics of the sport in Ra for the last two months and it’s now for the players to put into practice.

The six clubs have encouraged the Under-16 teams to appear on the first ever Ra 7s for 2010.

FNRL operations manager, Rusi Ratakele said FNRL is thankful to the Vanua of Ra for accepting the new code into their Province.

Ratakele said some of the sons of the Vanua of Ra have represented the Fiji Bati like the likes of Niumaia Korovata, Pio Kubuwai, Setareki Rakabula, Sevanaia Koroi.

“We would like to encourage the players of Ra to aim for the Rugby League 2013 World Cup and foremost to secure an NRL contract,” he said.

The following ten villages have formed six clubs for the 2011 Vodafone Cup, Rokovuaka, Nalawa, Tobu, Savulotu, Dama, Toki, Navitilevu, Nausori, Burenitu and Matawailevu.

The game kicks off this Saturday at 9am.
