7s stars see loved ones after 5 months

Members of the two-time Olympic gold medal winning Fiji Men's 7s team reunited with their families after more than five months today.

The Jerry Tuwai captained side ended quarantine this morning and West based players joined their families while the Central based players made a trip to Suva and met Fiji Rugby Union chief executive John O'Connor and other officials before rejoining their loved ones.

Special traditional welcome ceremonies were held for the individual players by their villagers and loved ones upon their arrival at home.

O'Connor said their priority was to ensure the players reached home safely and he is urging all players and their loved ones to strictly observe all the COVID-19 safety measures that are currently in place while celebrating the achievement in Tokyo Olympics.
