“See, this is the 12th edition, the 12th chapter of the McDonald’s Fiji’s Coral Coast Sevens. We’re very proud of its humble beginnings to where it’s developed now over the years. This year is going to see, obviously, great competition in all three divisions. We just last week announced the prize pool is 75,000 Fijian dollars. So it’s the richest prize pool in Fiji.”

Whyte is excited to have famous and international players participate in the tournament in Fiji.

The Coral Coast 7s will kick off on the 18th of January at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
