Rarotonga Sevens in Heaven teams march

The annual Sevens in Heaven rugby sevens tournament has just taken place here on Rarotonga.
Once again it was a great success with fine weather (apart from a heavy shower on the first afternoon), exciting rugby, plenty of food and lots of people dressing up and having fun.
The only things missing were the women's teams. There hasn't been a women's competition for the past two years which is a shame because their games are always popular with the spectators.
Next year is the 25th anniversary of the sevens tournament so let's hope the women are back in action then.
As usual the event opened with a march through town followed by a short opening ceremony and the 'dash for cash' run with a speedster from each team sprinting to win $100 for the charity of their choice.
