7s fans turn up

Maikeli Seru In Hamilton, New Zealand
Sunday, February 04, 2018

THERE is a sea 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 rugby fans of all walks are dressed in blue indicating a strong support for the Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team.

Fijians living here, especially Fijians of Indian decent, showed the true Fijian spirit dressed in blue to support the team. Among them was Avinesh Archari and his family, formerly of Nalovo, Nadi, who now live 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 defeated Wales 28-0 and survived a determined Spain 24-12 in its second Pool A clash.
