DC PARK 7s ENDS

BY ELTON LONARATHA JNR

THE DC Park Rugby 7s Solbrew Series ended at DC Park in East Honiara with its official presentation of prizes worth $88,000.00 for winners of the 4 Divisions, including special awards for best performance.

The three-day action pack rugby 7s tourney kicked off on Friday and ended yesterday with its final Playoff fixtures and Grand final match of the 4 Divisions competing for this year’s title at the tournament.

Baby Mix became champions of the Men’s Social Divisions by beating Big Baby by a strong 30-0, while Ailako Eels, representing the Malaita Province, delivered impressive talent in the Youth Division to claim the title after beating Covenant Rugby 15-10 in the Grand final match.

Representing the Western Province, New Georgia Raiders, dominated by Fiji talents, have proven their original, going tough to earn the Women’s Open Division title by beating West Side on a comfortable 51-0 in the Grand final.

A strong turnover this round in the Men’s Open Division as Diesel RC made a great impact following their couple of inclusions who traveled over to rescue the team and earned the title by beating fellow originals, the Task Force Cori Mada 3 (TFCM 3), with a shaking 12-5 win.
