Village hosts 7s team

DRATABU Village on the outskirts of Nadi Town was a sea of colours as it hosted the Vodafone Fiji 7s team for lunch yesterday.

Much of the focus was on local hero Samisoni Viriviri who became the first Fijian to claim the IRB 7s Player of the Year award.

Viriviri, who has signed up with Montpellier in France, said he would take a short break before preparing to take up his overseas contract.

He said under the contract, he would be getting French language lessons to help him communicate with his team and coaching staff members.

"It will take time for me to settle into 15s from 7s as both are different codes," Viriviri said.

"But I hope to adjust quickly."

The flyer, who scored a record 52 tries at the 2013/2014 HSBC Sevens World Series, will head to France at the end of June.
