THE Flying Fijians were hosted to a Thanksgiving Service at the Wesley City Mission Church in Suva yesterday for their efforts in the Pacific Nations Cup.

Fiji won the PNC for the first time after beating Tonga 34-21 last week.

Flying Fijians captain Akapusi Qera said the biggest thanks should be given to God for giving the players the talent and the strength to play to the best of their abilities.

He also thanked the people who supported the team in their endeavor over the course of the tournament.

"It is good to see that the people had faith in us and supported us throughout the competition," the robust flanker said.

"It was through the Lord and through the support of the people that Fiji was able to win this title."

Qera flies out to England on Monday to resume pre-season training with his Gloucester club. He said he would love to be part of Fiji's November tour and would wait and see how the selection goes.
