FIJI Airways men’s 7s fans will not ditch their support for the team during the HSBC Vancouver Sevens.

The 2022 Rugby World Cup champions who have hit the skids following their triumphant 29-12 win against New Zealand in Cape Town, can count on the raucous backdrop of the diehards to provide moral support at the BC Place Stadium.

Fiji lost 20-17 to Argentina in the LA 7s semi final last weekend, Puma’s also beat Fiji 26-10 in the Hamilton Sevens semi final game.

“We win some, we lose some, and that’s the nature of all sports, rugby’s no exception, we can’t win them all, we just need to keep supporting the team”, said Jaydon Veremula.

The Fiji 7s Fans Club of which Veremula is a member says there’s no trade in loyalty for the team’s anemic form, who feels the team will bounce back.

“Fiji hasn’t been consistent following the World Cup and much of it has to do with the exodus of players to explore new horizons overseas.”

“Huge turnover of new players, time will have them jell in to find their footing.

“Vancouver it is, it’s redemption time, and against the Pumas would be it.”

Veremula is calling on fans to come out in droves to support the team at the BC. Place Stadium.

“Let’s cheer on, and not jeer the team. Fiji has a-lot of rugby left in them to win the Vancouver cluster”.

Head coach Ben Gollings has sounded inconsistency on the part of the players and made four changes to the LA and Vancouver Sevens team.

Gollings was impressed with the debutants, saying the 4 new players who played like they’ve been playing for the national team for sometime and their third-place win will boost their confidence going into Vancouver.
