Rugby stars visit Fiji

Fiji has become a perfect holiday destination for rugby stars.

The likes of Michael Cheika, Kuridrani, Rieko Iowane, Naholo, Jo Cokanasiga and lately the World Rugby Player of the Year Beauden Barrett enjoyed their short stint and holidays in Fiji.

They loved the sandy beaches, Fijian sun, hospitality and the awesome weather.

It's nice to see that some of these world superstars have chosen our small beautiful islands for their vacation.

This goes out to show that our islands have everything that attracts their attention.

Perhaps a little bit more marketing during the WRSS and we should have more stars gracing our shores.

Just like the Fiji International Golf Tournament, we need a 7s tournament that can attract more rugby players, referees, coaches and managers to choose Fiji as their holiday destination.

During the Mana Whey Fiji Coral Coast 7s local fans will rub shoulders with the likes of 7s legend DJ Forbes, the King of 7s Serevi, former Wallabies international Tuqiri, Rasta Rasivhenge and our own Ben Ryan.

Is there a possibility of using these legends to market Fiji?

I'd like to see more international stars coming to boost our sports and tourism industry.

Let's show them that Fiji is the way that the world should be!
