THE national 7s players will share $10,000 bonus for reaching the semi-final of the HSBC Wellington 7s yesterday.

FRU chairman Filimoni Waqabaca said under the new sponsorship the players would receive bonus payments.

Waqabaca made the announcement in Nadi yestreday.

"Under the new sponsorship a bonus component has been included in the contract," he said.

"If the team win an IRB 7s tournament it's a $25,000 bonus, first runner — up will be $15,000 cash bonus and if they reach the semi-final they will get $10,000.

"We have lifted the bar to semi-final so it gives them an incentive to aim for higher goals."

Waqabaca said they were also considering rewarding players that won the Dubai 7s title last year.

He said FRU has also considered option of contracting national 7s players.

"As for the Dubai 7s we will see the financial status of FRU before we later decide on the rewards."

"There is also a plan to contract 7s players and hopefully will be able to do that."
