Former Australian rugby captain George Gregan says only the toughest team will come out victorious in the Mana Whey Coral Coast Sevens next week at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka.

The outspoken rugby legend arrived into the country with his family last night.

“There is always a strong rivalry, particularly when everyone wants to win this special tournament,”Gregan said.

Gregan, who has played 139 Test matches for Australia between 1994 and 2007, will be the ambassador of Fiji’s premier rugby 7s tournament.

“I’m really looking forward to the competition and my induction into the Walk of Fame which will be a huge honour. I will always love coming back to Fiji, it’s a special place and the people are beautiful.

“I first played in Fiji during the Fijian International 7s in Suva for the Australian Barbarians.

“My family is looking forward to the next few days.”

Previous Walk of Fame inductees include David Campese, Waisale Serevi, the late Jonah Lomu, Viliame Satala, Ben Gollings, Karl Te Nana and Lote Tuqiri.
