THE Vodafone Fiji 7s side had its jersey presentation at the Marco Polo Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong on Thursday night.

Present during the presentation were Fiji's high commissioners to China and Republic of Korea Esala Teleni and Filimoni Kau.

Former commissioner of police Teleni, who has been part of the team since early this week, has been helping the players get spiritually ready for the Hong Kong 7s tournament.

Fiji Rugby Union board members including chairman Filimone Waqabaca, deputy chairman Daniel Whippy and board member Baljeet Singh alongside acting chief executive officer Doctor Berlin Kafoa were also present.

The FRU board is in Hong Kong to meet the International Rugby Union delegates to discuss ways to strengthen their relationship.

A number of Fiji fans led by sisters Ane and Lynda Tabuya also attended the presentation with their banners assuring there won't be any lack of support in So Kon Po this weekend.

Players were reminded to represent the country well in the three-day tournament which started last night.
