Wednesday 27th May, Apia, Samoa – Bluesky Samoa and Independent Events today announced their second year of partnership to bring about the Samoa International Independence 7s 2015. The announcement was made at Bluesky’s Matafele store this afternoon, in the presence of Bluesky customers and one very special guest, world renowned 7s Maestro, Waisale Serevi.
The Directors of the Samoa Independence International 7s invited Serevi to come to Samoa to conduct clinics for some of the schools and local rugby players, in the lead up to this weekend’s tournament.
Bluesky’s Country Manager, Alex Abraham, officially congratulated Chairman Su’a Steve Schuster and the Organizing Committee of the Samoa Independence International 7s for carrying the tournament through to its second year.
“Our support is not only to the event itself but also to the causes that it supports both in the development of youth in rugby and also to the charity that the SII 7s has nominated to offer its proceeds to – namely Faataua le Ola and the Samoa Victim Support Group.”
The tournament will host several local as well as overseas teams including Fiji Police, Global Tabadamu and Uluinakau from Fiji, and Talavalu and Leone Whites from American Samoa, as well as teams from Australia and New Zealand.
Serevi spoke that his desire to help developing rugby players stems from his humble beginnings. He told of how he once was a young, aspiring rugby player who learned from some of the greats in rugby and it helped him get to where he is today, and he hopes that by holding clinics of his own, it will help one one or a few Samoan players to rise up in the international 7s ranks.
Bluesky customers and staff got the opportunity to take photos and get autographs from Serevi after the presentation, and he encouraged them all to come down to the Marist St. Joseph’s Sports Ground to watch and support the Samoa Independence International 7s this weekend.
