THE Fiji 7s team was presented with a bonus cheque of $35,000 by sponsors Vodafone and Fiji Airways yesterday.

The total amount is for winning the Tokyo 7s and reaching the semi-finals of the Hong Kong 7s.

Vodafone sponsorship and marketing manager Liga Gukisuva and Fiji Airways executive general manager sales and marketing, Otto Gergye presented the cheque to national coach Ben Ryan and captain Osea Kolinisau.

Meanwhile Ryan will be watching the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s in Nadi next week.

However the players in the national squad who are on the injury list will not be allowed to participate.

"There will be quite a few boys who will not be playing at the Nawaka 7s because of the injuries and rest times," he said.

"But chance will be given to everyone else.

"The in form players will be selected for Glasgow and London," he said.
