Fijian lung power at Las Vegas

A GROUP of Fiji 7s fans who called themselves as 'Toso Viti Toso Fans' residing in San Francisco has been following the Fiji 7s team since the introduction of the USA 7s at San Diego in 2004.

It consisted of more than 10 diehard Fiji 7s fans who have spent more than $F50,000 over 14 years to cheer on the Fiji 7s teams in the States.

These fans are easily recognised in USA 7s because they normally travel with their traditional Indian musical instruments such as the dholak to entertain the fans at the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament in the US.

Group leader Dharmendra Sharma said a total of 15 fans attended this year's event and started their cheering with the national anthem song.

He said they loved to follow the Fiji 7s team and were also proud of the team's achievement at the world 7s series.

"Honestly, we are the crazy Fiji 7s fans and we have been cheering the Fiji team since the introduction of the USA 7s event at San Diego," said Sharma.

"We have spent more than $50,000 for the past years and money is not our main concern.

"We follow the team because we are from Fiji."

Sharma said during the games other Fijian boys always joined the group cheering.

"We started our song with the national anthem followed by the other famous song in Fiji - this always attracted other local fans to join the side.

"We always support the team win or lose we are always there for the boys," he added.
