The Fijian champions went back to back in January’s Coral Coast Sevens tournament confirming their status as Fiji’s champion sevens team and a force to be reckoned with in the sevens arena.

Police will make their debut at the UON Central Coast Sevens in October and will no doubt be a strong contender for the title as they seek to create history.

Tournament Director Craig Morgan said:

“We welcome the announcement that Police will be contesting the UON Central Coast Sevens, the team have been a consistent and dominant team over a number of years in Fiji, the teams results speak for themselves two time runners up and now two-time champion of Fiji’s premier sevens tournament the Coral Coast Sevens. Police are an exceptionally strong side who will certainly worry the field of competitors, we look forward to welcoming Police to the Central Coast and seeing if the team can create a bit of history”.

The UON Central Coast Sevens and Fiji’s Coral Coast Sevens are long-standing partner events with the winner of each tournament receiving an automatic invitation to the sister event annually.

Fijian Giant Killers Tabadamu have been announced as the latest team confirmed for the 2016 UON Central Coast Sevens.
