The humiliation of a woman manager

Dear Editor,

Re: Revolving door and the Union’s legal woes 

Theresa Passi should have adhered to the principles of what the duty statements, for the position as Manager of the Samoa Sevens entailed.

Theresa went above and beyond her call of duties, by doing jobs that was not within her scope of responsibilities.

Being told that she did not make the cut as the Manager of the Manu Samoa Sevens, after a probation period of three months, Theresa was being humiliated by the Samoa Rugby Union.

The situation could have been avoided, if the lunatics at the S.R.U, had played their part to nurture, support, and help Theresa Passi, with resources needed to successfully perform duties required as Manu Samoa Sevens Manager.

Talk about sensitivity and sensibility; the S.R.U have been shown to possess none of the above qualities, especially when it comes to dealing with players, coaches and administrators. 

The Government has been building run down white elephants, yet the S.R.U cries foul, because it operates on limited funds, which does not bode well, for the anticipated success we crave, from the Manu Samoa Seven and Fifteen Teams any time sooner.

It is a disgrace to think, the S.R.U does not have the means or enough resources, to run and maintained Manu Samoa Rugby Teams.
