STUDENTS at St Anne’s Primary School couldn’t contain their happiness as they met the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians rugby team on Wednesday last week.

Loud cheers could be heard from students, teachers and parents as the national rugby team arrived at the school.
The team had visited the school students during their day off as a way to unwind from their hectic week of training.
Students of the all-girls school heard from the team the important role young girls can play through sports, particularly rugby.
Flying Fijian forward Dominiko Waqaniburotu said it was an honour and a privilege to be part of the event and to be able to meet the
students.
“Rugby nowadays is not only for men or boys, it’s also for girls and anything is possible if the heart is willing. And if you want to be a rugby
player and represent Fiji, nothing can stop you from trying,” Waqaniburotu said.
“We are so honoured to be here today enjoying with our young fans and future rugby stars of Fiji.”
The team later played against Georgia on Saturday at the ANZ Stadium, beating the visiting side 37- 15 to retain the World Rugby Pacific Nations Cup.
