According to the Fiji Rugby media, the Flying Fijians were appreciative of the overwhelming reception they received when they arrived at Fua’amotu International Airport on Tuesday.

“More than fifty members of the Fijian community sang Fijian songs, cheered and waved the Fiji flags as they greeted the team upon their arrival,” stated FRU.

“As the team left the airport in their bus, they were led by an entourage of Fijian fans in their vehicles, waving Fiji flags out the window and tooting their horns all the way to the team’s hotel. The locals also joined in by waving from the roadside and from their homes with placards welcoming the team.
