The presence of Fiji’s Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama at the 2014 Dubai 7s will indeed be a huge morale boost for the Vodafone Fiji 7s team.

This was revealed by head coach Ben Ryan.

Ryan said it was inspiring to the boys to have Bainimarama watching them in person and his attendance would only add to the excitement of the games.

“Having the Prime Minister here in Dubai is fantastic.

“He’s such a great supporter of rugby in the country and sevens in particular. The boys were lifted by the thought that he would be here to support the team and we’re also hoping he comes to see the boys before our first game.

“So all in all it’s an exciting weekend and it’s been made even more exciting by his presence.”

The 2014 Dubai 7s kicks off today with South Africa playing Portugal in the opening match at 6pm local time. Fiji take the field against France in the first pool match at 6.44pm. Fiji play their second pool match against Brazil at 9.44pm and their third and final pool match against Argentina at 1.52am.

Meanwhile, the women’s series icked off yesterday.
