TGIF fan, Jagat SinghTGIF fan, Jagat SinghFIJI Airways Fijian Men’s 7s team will have the much-needed support during the Las Vegas Sevens that gets underway on Friday.

The Thank God I’m Fijian (TGIF) fan group from Vancouver is in Sin City to cheer on their former countrymen.

Ajesh Raj, a Vancouverite, said the ten-member group have long been doing the Las Vegas Sevens and nothing has changed despite Vancouver hosting the sixth leg of the HSBC World Sevens Series in the last three years, next weekend being the fourth event.

“We continue with the Las Vegas tradition, one that started in 2010”, he said.

“Not that Vancouver leg is any less attractive, it is what it is”.

Rai said the excitement level hasn’t changed, it has only spiraled.

Jagat Singh says the Las Vegas Sevens brings out the best in the group.

He said it is the Fiji sevens rugby and the party atmosphere that makes the trip that much more thrilling.

“Vegas is by far the best event on the circuit for obvious reasons.

“We do it out of love for Fiji 7s team”.

Rai added, Fiji 7s team needs to up the ante from the very get go and end their 2- year winless run.

“We have the team’s back, we will make sure our voices make all the difference, go Fiji go”.

Fiji 7s team last won the Las Vegas Sevens in 2016.
