One Minute Applause to Say, Thank You Frontliners!

Matnieul Lauli’i Lions during the Minute of Applause for Samoa's frontliners during XXXIII Vailima Marist International 7’s.

The Marist St Joseph’s Sports Club paid special tribute to Samoa’s frontline staff working tirelessly to keep Samoa safe from the global coronavirus pandemic by observing a Minute of 👏 Applause.

Players from the two teams who made the Tupua Fred Wetzell Championship Cup finals took a minute out before the game to applaud the first responders and frontline staff of Samoa.

Players of Matnieul Laulii Lions and the Faleolo Jets from Aana stood clapping for a whole minute.. joined by everyone in the stadiums.. to honor our doctors, nurses, customs officers, immigration officials, airport security, quarantine, stevedoring services, drivers and cleaners who are all called upon to secure our borders during flight and vessel arrivals.
