Update: 11:19AM THE Fiji Rugby Union has welcomed the support of President Jioji Konrote in its bid to host a World Sevens Series tournament.

FRU Chief Executive Officer John O�Connor said they were humbled by the support of the President who hosted the organisation to a reception yesterday.

"We would like to thank him and the President�s Office in supporting Fiji's bid," Mr O'Connor said.

When questioned about former Fiji 7s coach, Ben Ryan�s speaking out against the bid, Mr O�Connor said the FRU was focused on providing a credible bid.

"We will take all the criteria and hopefully get a positive feedback from the World Rugby," he said.

Mr Ryan had said the costs of hosting a HSBC 7s tournament was too high and that the likelihood of profit being made was low.
