Organisers of the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens will attempt to woo the Fijian national team and English Premiership clubs for future tournaments, after hailing the inaugural event as a massive success.

Duco Australia chief executive Rachael Carroll said she was "thrilled" with how the first edition turned out.

Despite lower than expected crowds at Suncorp Stadium, it proved a hit for on‑field entertainment and an ideal pre‑season appetizer for Super Rugby.

Carroll adds that they have had overwhelming feedback and they would love to see Fiji in this tournament.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs took out the inaugural Brisbane Global Rugby Tens beating Crusaders 12‑5 in the final at Suncorp Stadium.

The Chiefs have dedicated their Brisbane Global Tens triumph to the late former All Blacks and Chiefs loose forward Sione Lauaki.

The Chiefs won all four games in the blistering Brisbane heat to charge to the title, toppling the Crusaders 12‑5 in the final.

At the heart of their success was captain Liam Messam, a good friend of Lauaki's who played in his honour.

The Chiefs defeated the Bulls 26‑14 in the first semi final while the Crusaders beat the Hurricanes 17‑7.
