Coral Coast 7s returns

Coral Coast 7s

Fiji’s CORAL COAST SEVENS returns after a two-year absence in 2023 with a strong line up, a big name ambassador, and renewed financial support.

The 11 year old tournament which gathers premium Fijian rugby talent in one place for the benefit of Fiji Rugby selectors, was postponed due to COVID.

The tournament will field an equal number of women and men teams. “This year we are welcoming 16 women’s teams to the tournament, and we are also working with our very hardworking women’s movement to encourage a level rugby playing field. After our Tokyo Olympic bronze medal, it should be clear to all now that our rugby talent pool has equal parts men and women,” Coral Coast 7s chairman Jay Whyte said.

Tournament Ambassador Collins Injera, former Kenyan Sevens rep and second top try scorer globally, said he is keen to come to a country he dreams of playing against. The 2008–09 IRB Sevens Player of the Year Nominee was top try scorer for 2008 /2009 IRB Sevens World Series season with 42 tries. Injera will stay in Fiji for one week, sharing rugby wisdom with tournament players and rugby fans next year.

The tournament will take place in January 12-14, 2023, at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka.
