Fijian support pours into USA
July 18, 2018 4:04 am
The atmosphere is hyping up in the USA as the Fijian warriors took over San Francisco’s Union Square, performing traditional song and dance to kick off celebrations ahead of the Rugby World Cup Sevens tournament.
San Francisco is hosting the games plus it’s a milestone as this is the first time the rugby championship has been held in the United States.
Organizers say they hope to spread the “bula” spirit.
This is the first time many of these young dancers have travelled outside of the islands.
Meanwhile, Fiji 7s side will play the winner of Japan versus Uruguay in its first game at 3.53pm on Saturday.
The Cup quarterfinal finals start at 10.32am on Sunday while the semi-final begins at 7.40am on Monday and the final is scheduled for 12.49pm.
You can watch the tournament live on FBC TV.
