It was an emotional moment for the sevens maestro Waisale Serevi being part of the crowd to support our victorious Sevens team on Monday.

During an interview with World Rugby commentator and former New Zealand 7s winger  Karl Te Nana, Serevi was brought to tears as he thought of those struggling the aftermath of Cyclone Winston.

Serevi said the win meant a lot to the people of Fiji despite the challenging times.

“It makes everyone back at home happy and people that are here especially the things that Fiji is facing at the moment.

“I’m so proud of the boys and I was saying all along that I want Fiji to not only win but to dedicate this to the people back at home who are struggling,” he said.

Serevi commended head coach Ben Ryan and the team for the job well done in their achievement during the finals as it will put smiles on every Fijian.

“I salute Ben Ryan and all the boys for the effort, I know that last week all of them were a little bit sick and for them to win this, it means a lot. Not only winning in Vegas because they won last year. I think back at home, a lot of people are looking for a house and what to eat in a couple of months but this one alone makes people happy at home,” he said.

He said as the HSBC world rugby sevens series is getting tougher it took a lot of courage and enthusiasm for Fiji to come back from 15- nil down against Australia in the final.

“I’m so happy for the boys, proud of the boys and looking forward to the Vancouver sevens next weekend,” he said.

 

Message from Serevi

to all Fijians

He added:  “To all of you in Fiji, we are thinking of you in your difficult times.

“We thank God for all that he has done which led us to victory.

“I believe the boys are happy with what they have accomplished beating Australia in the final and I hope that you will give the boys your continuous support in the upcoming tournaments and hope 2016 will be a good year for us.”
