Media Release 02/07/07

FRANCE 2007’s

Before Fiji flies to France for the World Cup, 5 French U19 teams will be playing 7s rugby in Fiji.

Under 19 French teams from Perpignan, Tahiti, New-Caledonia and Wallis will play Fiji Secondary School teams during a two-day tournament in Prince Charles Park, Nadi.

Initiated by the French Embassy in Suva, the France 2007’s tournament builds up to the Rugby World Cup, which will take place in France from September 7 until October 30, 2007. The international dimension of the event makes it a unique opportunity for an extensive cultural exchange between young Fijian and French Pacific Islanders. With its popularity in both countries, rugby is the ideal medium to breach the language barrier.

France 2007’s is also meant to be the first edition of an annual celebration of U19 7s rugby in Fiji. As the world champions of Sevens Rugby, Fiji is known throughout the whole world and we must not forget that this shortened version of Rugby contributes immensely in various areas of development in the country.
