FIJI Airways managing director and chief executive officer Stefan Pichler has labelled the national 7s players as role models.

Pichler was at the Nadi International Airport yesterday to greet the players and management upon their arrival.

"I watched every single game and it was a fantastic performance," he told the players.

"You played the most exciting rugby for the spectators. You are an inspiration to every single Fijian.

"They follow everything you do in weeks and months. Young ones growing up will say I want to be like him and fly like a Fijian. All players have been excellent ambassadors for the country."

Meanwhile, Vodafone chief marketing manager Sanjeewa Perera said the team put in tremendous effort to retain the third place in the HSBC Sevens World Series.

"Adding to the achievement is the man of the moment Samisoni Viriviri who has made history by becoming the first Fijian to win the IRB 7s Player of the Year award," Perera said.

"He also finished as the top try scorer in the series. I wish to thank Samisoni for his achievement and to take our brand and consortium to the various parts of the world.

"We will continue to support our boys in making more historical moments in the future."
