To say Tom Hamilton is a Queensland Reds fan is an under statement.

The truth is, he is die-hard fan.

So much so that despite his disability, he travelled all the way from Australia to watch his team in action last night.

Mr. Hamilton wouldn’t miss the game for the world.

Tom’s father, Philip Hamilton, said his son is huge fan of the Reds team and when he heard they were going to play in Samoa, he saved up just so he can come and see his team play.

“My son has a blog called “Reds Rugby Rules” and he gets to interview the Reds team and ask them some unique questions,” said Mr. Hamilton.

“So me and my son saved up so we can come and see the team play. This is our first time here and he has enjoyed himself here despite the weather.”

Samoa has impressed them.

“It’s very clean and friendly,” he said.

“The people are always helping and for a country that has such a small economy I think it’s great.”

The food is another great part of Samoa.

 “Another thing that amazes me and me family is the fish. 

“The taste is so good and it is always fresh I don’t know about other tourists but as for us especially my son Tom he really loves it and it’s his favorite food now.”

Mr. Hamilton went on to say they would visit Samoa again.

“We visited the market and we bought some traditional things that we want to take for souvenirs,” he said.

“This is such a good place for fishing as I love fishing.

“And I also heard that you guys have an international fishing game every year and I would love to join that fishing tournament but I’ll probably have a look so I can come and join in.

“But for the past days that we have been it is such a beautiful place and I don’t think we will ever go anywhere else for vacation other than here.

“So hopefully in the future I hope to bring my family here for vacation and hopefully it will be a longer one than this.

“So good job Samoa.”
