Fiji beats South Africa 24 – 17 to win World Series tournament

February 6, 2018 Sports No Comments Email Email

Rugby fans across the world were glued to their screens to see the national Fiji team pull off a scintillating comeback to stun South Africa and win the Hamilton Sevens cup title. Talented newcomer Alasio Naduva was crucial in the Fijians’ win, and picked up the man of the match award. 

Sports tourism, particularly rugby groups and tours, is a growing market for Fiji, and contributes to the nation’s sports development.

 The Fiji national Olympic Gold Medal rugby team trains at Uprising Beach Resort, just 45 minutes from Suva. The resort is located on 2km of absolute sand beach front. 

It is the preferred resort of the many touring sports teams that come to Fiji to compete, while still allowing for that special Fijian Islands experience to shine through. In fact, the Fiji team will be back at Uprising next week, after a well-deserved week off.

 Teams can “Eat, Stay, Train, Repeat” at Uprising with the rugby facilities and gym located less than 50 metres away from the resort. This allows teams to achieve their purpose as well as make the most of their Fiji Time holiday. The training facility includes the largest and best equipped resort gym in Fiji. 

All teams staying at the Uprising Beach Resort on one of its all-inclusive packages are provided with complimentary use of the rugby training facilities including hosting of matches. 

Fiji’s favourite rugby camp offers accommodation from AU$37 per person B&B and has the following specials:

  • Stay 3, Receive 10% Off
  • Stay 5, Receive 15% Off

For group bookings the following offer is currently valid:

  • Book 7 or more of the same or similar room category and receive one FOC

There are also very affordable all-inclusive meal packages tailored for the touring sports side to ensure all the team’s dietary requirements are met starting from AU$83 per person.
