Rarotonga Sevens in Heaven - fun and games

Here's the final video from this year's fabulous Sevens in Heaven tournament.
Over the three days of competition we were treated to excellent rugby from local and overseas teams.
Saturday was the highlight as always. Families and groups of friends and supporters made the most of the great weather with some setting up tents on the banks of our national BCI stadium while others grabbed a bit of shade in the grandstand or chilled out in the bar or VIP area. Plenty of food of course, this is the Cook Islands after all and what's a day out without a feed?
Heaps of people got into the party mood by dressing up; some entered the various costume contests but others were just intent on letting down hair and kicking up heels for a bit of fun.
One of the great things about this tournament is how good natured everyone is and long may that continue.
Thanks to the hardworking organisers and all the teams: Teimurimotia Stallions; General Transport Tabusoro; Porirua Magic (NZ); Atiu Warriors; Tauae Bulls; Araura Enua; Avatiu Rugby Club; Titahi Bay Panthers (NZ); Rebels; Bombay Hawks; Titikaveka Telecom Colts; Tupapa Maraerenga Panthers; Shuzi Flying Dragons; ICBH Arorangi Cowboys; Mareko's and AS Manu Ura (Tahiti).
Hope to see you all again next year.
