The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team displayed something special when they lifted the ball girl high up in the air while they said their final prayer before kickoff against USA in the Cup final on Sunday.

Supported by Fijian fans that turned out in force at the FMG Stadium with their blue flags, they applauded the special moment when the Gareth Baber coached side lifted the little girl.

“Humility is a big part of our values, we talk as a team and anybody is part of our family.

“A ball girl coming in there is much as likely to be on this rugby field as anybody else. It’s very special for us to have people in the sport like that.” Baber said.

The side was awarded the UL Mark of Excellence Award for the act of sportsmanship.

Fiji has now won two of the first three tournaments of the World Sevens Series tied with USA on 57points.
