Re: Manu Samoa Sevens head to Hong Kong

I only pray that with Stephen at home, Gordon and Paul’s communication skill sets overcome any difficulty with the Samoan language or knowledge of Samoan customs and relations that they may be lack. 

It makes more sense that as Assistant Coach and a speaker in the Samoan language, Stephen’s presence would be better felt on the sideline. 

Supervising the players at home etc, seems to be a weak reason especially if the players are supposed to be professionals. Maybe we are starting to see the reason why Gordon’s time was up in NZ? Go hard Manu or don’t go at all. Peace!
