Fiji 7s hosted lunch reception by French Ambassador to Fiji

June 19, 2018 4:31 am

French Ambassador to Fiji Sujiro Seam has acknowledged the Fiji Airways 7s team’s effort in the World Sevens Series.

Seam hosted a lunch reception for the Fijian side together with the Fijiana 7s team at his residence this afternoon thanking them for commitment to the sport.

Seam says despite Fiji narrowly missing out on the World Sevens Series title, they played really well and deserve to be acknowledged for their efforts.

“My expectation Fiji 7s would win the Paris title and the World Series title but I was a little bit disappointed that didn’t happen but talking about the present I want to thank you guys and congratulate you because throughout this season you’ve displayed an incredible performance.”

Seam also thanked the Fijian’s contribution to the development of French rugby.

Three hundred Fijians are playing professional rugby in France which twenty-three are playing in the French Top 14 rugby competition.
