A TELEVISION crew from the International Rugby Board Sevens World program was present at the Uprising Fiji International 7s to film stories on local players and teams.

Series producer Gari Jenkins told irb.com his team were "extremely excited about filming" at the tournament at Lautoka's Churchill Park.

The team has been in Fiji since Monday and departed our shores yesterday.

"We've looked at the possibility of covering this high quality tournament for a few years now, and we're delighted to be able to do so in 2013," Jenkins said.

"We'll be filming stories on the likes of Setefano Cakau, the Fijiana Women's team — who have done so well in qualifying for the Rugby World Cup 7s in Moscow — and catching up with as many ex-Fiji star players as possible in an effort to answer that all-important question ­— what makes Fiji, and Fijian players, so talented in 7s rugby?

"The various stories we film will feature in the IRB Sevens World TV show, and also on the IRB's online video platforms … the IRB YouTube channel, and on www.irbsevens.com," Jenkins said.
