Bula to all you Fiji Rugby Blog followers,
Have been out of touch for a while and thank you for the recent comments which is quite stirring and prompting me out of hibernation.
Watched Fiji’s last gasp 41-38 win against Tonga in Apia last Sunday (Fiji Time) on TV and was inspired by the relatively young team that showed a lot of character and depth in the Pacific Nations Cup competition.
Fiji has defeated both Japan and Tonga and has Samoa as the last hurdle to win the regional title.
With 12 months to go for the Rugby world cup in New Zealand, Fiji has a lot of promise in the young talent with lots of enterprising and creative touches.
Fiji’s biggest need I believe is to regain confidence in themselves and some concentrated effort camping together as a team.
Logistics also need to be put in place for the itinerary next year to suit the team’s needs and focus for the coming world cup.
With the nearness of the venue we need to take the advantage and raise enough funds to set our own itinerary instead of allowing the IRB to dictate terms for us.
All the best for coach Sam Domoni and the new faces donning Fiji jumpers in Apia.
