Vegas 7s

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

I recall this famous caption in a few movies and it has become synonymous nowadays in everyday language.

But this weekend, our 7s gladiators will put on their battle armour once again and try to please their unforgiving supporters back home, but I urge us all to give them our support win or lose let's all rally and put up the old banner blue in front of our houses and cheer for the boys.

We can't say this one should have gone or that one, the team is ready to do battle so whoever wears that white jumper today has our backs and vice versa.

To the boys and our own dragon go hard and play as one and show the world we are truly the golden kings of sevens.

To the big wigs in the white house, please put aside your petty issues and put the players' welfare ahead of you and let the Flying Fijian soar high.

So whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Good luck boys and good hunting.
