Asking the hard questions

Dear Editor

Re: Manu Samoa result 

Seriously? We need to ask the hard question. Is it worth pursuing a place at the next W.C. when we are really suck at playing rugby right now. 

The basic skills are just not there. I feel sorry for players like Tim Nanai who are used to playing at a level where consecutive losses is a rarity. 

We should give the opportunity to another country who are more determined to win while we try and take baby steps again learning how to catch the ball. 

Forget another expensive trip to Europe to try and qualify. 

It’ll end up just like the sevens when they failed to go to the Olympics. Give it a break for a year and save the poor country from going through another national embarrassment.
