Fiji Rugby History
When talking about Fijian rugby we can't fail to mention the Fiji national rugby sevens team, with a large number of Hong Kong Sevens tournament wins starting in 1977, alongside victories at the Rugby World Cup Sevens and the first rugby gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. The Sevens team is one of the world's most successful rugby teams. A host of stellar performances over the years from great teams and players such as Waisale Serevi, Rupeni Caucau and Vilimoni Delasau also makes Fijian rugby perhaps the most thrilling and immensely popular. Stunning victories and countless great tries means there is a place in the hearts of rugby fans all over the world for the men who have worn the white of Fiji. Fijian rugby has a top class pedigree that very few nations can match, the challenge now facing the Pacific Islanders is transferring their success at the Sevens game over to both the fifteens and thirteens teams.
Fiji Rugby League
The Fijian rugby league team is making up for lost time with the league game only introduced to Fiji in 1992. They took part in their first World Cup in 1995 and hit the ground running with an impressive 52-6 victory over South Africa announcing the Bati as a force in world rugby league. Since then Fiji have solidified their place as one of the top teams in world rugby league with back to back semifinal appearances in 2008 and 2013. Some thrilling performances in both victory and defeat also make Fiji one of the most watchable teams on the world circuit and you can be sure to witness fireworks when they are paired against their fierce Pacific rivals Samoa.
