Tabadamu Blue successfully retained its Fiji Bitter Marist 7s title at the ANZ Stadium in Suva tonight beating Army Green 24-12 in a pulsating final.

The Setefano Cakau skippered side led 12-7 at halftime with tries from playmaker Teri Tamani and Leo Naikasau while Army Green scored first through Samuela Bale.
