Manu game a pain in my heart

Dear Editor,

Re: All Blacks Test against Samoa confirmed

Ever since the Samoa government took over Manu Samoa it has never been the same rugby team.

Manu Samoa seems more like the H.R.R.P. Rugby Team than Samoa’s team (even the results reflect this).

I am expecting a thrashing by 50 or more points. Now when I hear that Manu Samoa is playing the All Blacks (or any other team) there is no more excitement and anticipation but pain in my heart.

Manu Samoa used to be Samoa’s team but not anymore.
