This is hardly surprising

Re: Samoa Rugby bankruptcy fears

I know there are many people who are not even surprised to hear this news. 

We have heard from time and time again the answers to questions about the use of funds and who is profiting from donations and money given to help our rugby from other countries and as well as kind donations from our own people. 

It’s the same people.

The Union owes Damian McGrath millions of dollars for their wrong decision from two years ago when all of a sudden they let MGrath go after a successful one-year campaign.

After a year by Gordon Tietjens that provided the worst standing by Manu Samoa 7s, and you know what, Tietjens has even more say about the team. 

But they say its all about ‘results.’ 

Hahaha, isn’t that funny? Now they let go of a new rugby manager with only 3 months? 

The C.E.O’s explanation about this flop doesn’t make sense again.

The people of the country deserve to hear the true reasons for these actions. One day the dishonesty of these men will be revealed before our eyes. 

I feel bad for our young athletes who put their talents and commitment for the name of our country. 

Samoa will never see success as long as certain men continue to be involved.

P.M. Tuilaepa, C.E.O Fepuleai and many others, do the right thing and step down. You have been there too long to make a difference but so far, there is nothing to show.
