The Vodafone 7’s side collected $20,000 in bonus for finishing in third place in both tournaments.   

Vodafone Fiji CEO, Mr Pradeep Lal said:

“the IRB 7’s competition is getting tougher with each leg.  The top teams are now roping in new players to find that formidable combination for Rio Olympics…For our 7’s boys, it is a tough road ahead as defending champions”.

Mr. Lal said they had put in place a bonus structure to continue to incentivize the team for finishing in the top four if they did not make it to the finals.

“We welcome back our 7’s gladiators and thank them for giving their best in the two tournaments.  Whilst we rue the missed opportunity,  we are nonetheless happy with the current top  placing on the world series leaderboard.   As sponsors, we are proud and would like to reward the team with a $20,000 cash bonus  and  motivate them to do their best in the remaining legs.”
