Fijian powerhouse Daveta have been announced as the latest team confirmed for the 2016 UON Central Coast Sevens.
The two time World Club Sevens Champions claimed the Central Coast Sevens title in 2014 in emphatic style with a powerful team full of Fiji National 7s players.
The team will no doubt be out to avenge their 2015 performance unable to reach the final with a powerful side full of World Series experience.
Daveta have featured some of Fiji’s best players at the CC7s including World Series superstars including Apisai Domalailai, Savenaca Rawaca and the live-wire Jerry Tuwai.
In the 2014 final Fijian International Viliame Mata raced away for one of the fastest tries in the world scoring off the Daveta kick off to touch down in 8 seconds flat.
Tournament Director Craig Morgan said “we welcome the return of Daveta who are one of the strongest and very best teams in the world with an all star line up. We know Daveta will come out all guns blazing to reclaim the title they held in 2014 and we are excited to see the calibre of the team they bring to the Coast in October”.
The UON Central Coast Sevens kicks off Friday 21st October with under 17s youth boys and girls tournament with the international men’s and women’s tournament taking place Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd October at Wyong Rugby League Club.
