TOP Fiji 7s club Wardens Gold received a timely message from Commissioner of Corrections Lieutenant Colonel Ifereimi Vasu during the team ai-tatau presentation on Friday night.
The Vinod Patel Limited-sponsored side left the country yesterday for Samoa where it will play in the Samoa Independence International 7s tournament in Apia this weekend.
Wardens Gold will be accompanied by giants Yamacia and Police which are the other two local teams participating in the tournament.
Lt-Col Vasu reminded the players to be good ambassadors of Fiji in the two-day tournament starting on Friday.
"You will not only be carrying the flag of this nation but will also be representing the Fiji Corrections Service, so please be good ambassadors on and off the field," said Lt-Col Vasu in a government statement.
"Remember to play with passion and pride and do your utmost best on the field of play.
"We send you with our best wishes and hope that you will do well and make us proud."
Wardens Gold team manager Kaliopasa Bogiva said they were eyeing a win in the tournament.
"We were invited by the Samoa Rugby Union to participate in the two-day event and it's going to be a huge challenge as we know that we will be playing against well-known players."
Wardens Gold will feature players such as national rep Waisea Nacuqu and former Fiji 7s playmaker Ilai Tinai.
