Payout and Celebrations for team that won the IRB 7s Rugby title
Cabinet has approved a payout of F$160,000.00 to be shared among team members that won Fiji the IRB 7s title after winning the London IRB 7s tournament last weekend. The payout will be shared amongst all players and officials that had played during the IRB circuit this year. In addition, Cabinet has also approved official celebrations to be held for the win during the Queen's Birthday Holiday on Monday, 12 June. A program for the celebrations is being drawn up. In the meantime, the team will be arriving in Fiji tomorrow and are to be hosted at a village at Nadi. All villages along the road from Nadi to Suva have been asked to be ready to welcome the team members as they travel down to Suva after the welcoming celebrations at Nadi. The IRB 7s title win adds another plume to Fiji's crown after our team won the World Cup 7s tournament in Hong Kong last year.
