Sevuloni Mocenacagi has apologised to fans for letting the team down at the Sydney 7s over the weekend.

The Nukuilau, Navosa native was red card­ed for a dangerous tackle on New Zealand’s Scott Gregory in the Cup semifinal. Fiji lost 14-36.

The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s rep sought for­giveness as the team arrived at the Nadi In­ternational Airport last night.

“I did not expect it to be that serious but it came at a price and I’m sorry for letting the team and the country down,” Mocenacagi said.

Mocenacagi has urged fans to continue sup­porting the team as there are six more tour­nament left to play.

“We do encounter a lot of things as such but given another chance I will prove myself,” he said.

The side arrived in Nadi yesterday with­out head coach Gareth Baber after finishing fourth at the Sydney 7s losing to England 19-17 in the 3rd place playoff.
