THE Vodafone Fiji 7s players received a $20,000 bonus payment for reaching the semi-finals of the Glasgow and London 7s.

Fiji lost to New Zealand on both occasions. Fiji Rugby Union board member Baljeet Singh said the boys had put a lot of effort and dedication despite facing difficulties.

Singh said the sport was building the nation.

"They did the job despite going through some difficult periods in terms of trying to sort out the sponsorship and all that," Singh said at the official welcoming ceremony. "We will not forget the sacrifices that they have made. This is something that is very commendable. The team has performed and shown to the world that we are the 7s.

"Whenever you travel overseas, as soon as you say Fiji, the first thing that turn up on peoples mind is 7s. The sport is building the nation.

"We are going forward with the Rugby House which is a 10-storey building worth $8million. We are not looking at sponsors for money all the time but are thinking outside the box to look for revenue for FRU to move ahead."
