Let’s make it happen. Seriously. While the calls for Samoa A to play the Manu Samoa perhaps started out as a joke, it could actually be one of the best things to happen in Samoan rugby by a long stretch. And not just because of the negativity surrounding the latest selection of the country’s national team, Manu Samoa.
Re: Internet speeds open local job prospects This is a fantastic direction and support led by government. The potential to be unlocked using I.C.T. is not limited to these types of operations and I hope the government lets the private sector share some of the reins on where this industry could be headed for the future.
Re: Samoa A Samoa needs more time to develop local talent. Going on tour, as well as competing in tournaments is key. A schoolboy’s team should go on tour and should also have an annual competition involving Fiji, Tonga, Cook Islands, etc.
Dear Editor, A headless body loses its life. It is the reason why foreign military invaders historically go after the leaders first of the invaded communities. Take away the leadership and the community will scatter making it easier to defeat them.

It is a swampy situation when two headed dragons get cross eyed and hit each other as a result. But Samoans do not have dragons or even celebrate to that effect, as the Chinese do, so I guess we could think of two headed stray tom cats to make a point with governance, in the church and in the political arena.
No media The British American Tobacco Company, previously known as Rothmans, celebrated a milestone at Robert Louis Stevenson Museum last night. It was their 40th birthday in Samoa.
Is this Samoa’s Manu Samoa? Two issues stand out like a sore thumb in the selection of the Manu Samoa. Firstly, there is not a single player picked from the competitions in Samoa.
Think global act local Hats off to the Prime Minister for joining his Pacific colleagues in alerting world leaders to the effects of climate change in the Pacific. But it is time for Samoa to think globally and act locally so can the Government advise if there will be subsidies for businesses and individuals who want to use alternative electricity sources to light up their homes?
