The San Francisco Golden Gate club is ramping up its 7s efforts this summer, after not competing in 2010.

New 7s Head Coach Jone Naqica, who remains the top all-time USA points-scorer in the IRB Sevens World Series, is assembling a talented squad of players from the SFGG Super League as well as area colleges.

Central to the team will likely be longtime scrumhalf Mose Timoteo and players such as Tevita Okusi and possibly Danny LaPrevotte and Mile Pulu.

But what SFGG needs is competition, and to do that they’ve set up their own 7s tournament for July 2 at Treasure Island.

“We need to have a competitive tournament with serious teams,” said Naqica. “We want to qualify for nationals, that’s the first goal. And we want to have a tournament where everyone plays four games, and goes for a trophy.”

The tournament is the Nesquik Golden Gate Invitational, and will be held at Sheeran Field on Treasure Island July 2. Registration is at www.sfggrugby.com
