The two teams that travelled the farthest went head-to-head in the $1,000 Tier 1 Final at the first-ever Center of Gravity Sevens. The Defcon Fiji Blond side from Burnaby/Bayside defeated Vancouver Island's Westshore Valhallians 38 - 5. The talented Fiji side scored 191 points in their tournament games, allowing only 19 points against.

In the $500 Tier 2 Final, The Tropicoos took their equatorial jerseys and milked The Bovines 22 - 0. No cattle were harmed in the playing of that game.

Many participants commented on the uniqueness of the Center of Gravity Sevens. How many sevens tournaments enable you to jump in a beautiful lake after each game, enjoy motocross, beach volleyball, skateboard enthusiasts and even axe-throwers between matches, and take in some first-class music each night?

Spokesperson for the COG Sevens sponsor, The Rugby Shop, Ed Pye said, "This tournament was played with a real fun festival spirit and was a great addition to the other Center of Gravity events. The Rugby Shop looks forward to helping this tournament become one of the best in Canada."
