IRB Wellington 7s starts Friday
The IRB Wellington 7s Rugby Tournament starts midday Friday, 2 February 2007, with games relayed live on Fiji TV. Fiji is defending champions having won the tournament last year. Earlier, the NZ Sports Minister said that there will be no official welcome for the teams given that Fiji was participating and to reflect NZ's official position regarding the Interim Government. I might say, however, that it does look to have been a good psychological tactic being played by NZ. We hope that our boys will not be demoralised and that they will rise up to the challenge. Go Fiji!
