Leuta, Iosefo Play At Sri Lanka 7s

Matai Leuta and Martin Iosefo have stayed busy this summer playing in the Sri Lanka 7s. For those who aren't aware the Sri Lanka 7s are a tournament that traditionally pays Sevens Series regulars to supplement local squads. The tournament is split into two legs: Kandy and Colombo. In the past a number of Americans have participated and this year it's Leuta and Iosefo. Both played for the Mobitel Eagles.

Overall it was a good tournament for the Eagles as they went on to win the tournament.  In pool play the Eagles beat the Access Kings 26-12, the KBSL Dragons 24-21, and the Softlogic Warriors 14-5. A number of the other teams had members of the Fijian national team. In the quarterfinals they narrowly got past the EZY Wolves 7-5. The semi-finals were similarly narrow at 7-5 over the Access Kings. In the final they beat the Warriors 19-5. Both Leuta and Iosefo played big roles.
