For the first time on Sunday the Vodafone Flying Fijians Test jersey will have the pop­py embroidered on it.

Expect our Flying Fijians to run onto the Principality Stadium in Cardiff in their one off national jer­sey in respect to Remembrance Day, which will be observed before kick­off at 3.15am on Monday (Fiji time).

Yesterday, Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) Chief Executive Officer John O’Connor, while confirming Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama watching the Fij-Wales Test match, also said he would hand out the jer­seys to the team.

“Wales will be celebrating Remem­brance Day on the day. Out of re­spect, the Vodafone Flying Fijians will have the poppy embroidered on their jerseys,” O’Connor said.

Bainimarama is the FRU presi­dent.

“They are yet to send the pro­gramme over but we know that they (Wales) are celebrating Poppy Day on the day,” he said.

“For the first time we will have the poppy embroidered on the national rugby jersey.

“All the players, coaches and sup­port staff were all from that side of the globe because of COVID-19.”

Fiji, like other Commonwealth countries, commemorates Remem­brance Day in honour of the souls lost during the World Wars.
