Rugby Union trying to coach the coach

Dear Editor,

The Samoa Rugby Union's decision to hire Coach McGrath after years of heartbreaking and stagnation with our local coaching talents was unconventional but refreshing and courageous nevertheless. 

Judging from McGrath's record and the team's success last season, I personally believe Coach deserves more time and our continued support in terms of morals and resources.

I find the Samoa Rugby Union's explanation unbelievable.

It seems like SRU is trying to coach the Coach. The decision reflects poorly on SRU and it will make it very difficult for Samoa to attract more talented coaches from outside the country.

SRU is hurting no one but ourselves.

Fa'afetai lava Coach McGrath. For Faleomavaega and SRU, matou tapua'i atu.
