MEMBERS of the Fijian community organised a dinner and raised funds for our national sevens teams.

Fijians from around Europe including the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Switzerland, Brussels , Germany and even Hawaii were present at the dinner which was held on Saturday night in Paris.

The dinner and soli is held every year for the national sevens rugby team.

This year the soli is also for the women’s team as their tournament is also being held the same team as the men’s.

France XVs and 7s rep, Virimi Vakatawa has been a regular attendant of the event.

He was in attendance again on Saturday night.

Vakatawa is recovering from a recent surgery.
