HAMILTON 7s: Fijians hype up Hamilton

MAIKELI SERU in Hamilton, New Zealand
Saturday, February 03, 2018

Update: 11:35AM THERE is a sesa of blue sweeping the 23,500 capacity five-storey FMG Waikato Stadium an hour into the inaugural Hamilton 7s in New Zealand this morning.

Fijians of all races and Fiji rugby fans of all walks are dressed in blue indicating a strong support for our Fiji Airways 7s team.

Fijians living here, especially Fijians of Indian decents, showed the true Fijian spirit dressed in blue to support the team.

Among them is Avinesh Archari and his family, formerly of Nalovo, Nadi, who now lives in Auckland.

"There are 11 of us who came down. We drove down to support our team because this is the Fiji team. They will win," Archari said.

Fiji plays Wales at 12.36pm (NZ time), Spain at 4.02pm, Australia at 7.50pm.
