Get Ma’a Nonu and Steven Luatua

Dear Editor,

Re: Interest in the Manu Samoa 

It would be great to have Steven Luatua and Victor Vito in Samoa’s forward pack. Having Peter Saili, Christian Leali’ifano, Maa Nonu and Isaiah Toeava in the backline would be awesome. 

Samoa’s union has shown no inclination to acquire such players, and it could mean they are not considering all options to make the team very competitive. At least a couple of the guys mentioned above have shown interests to play for Samoa. 

But these dudes, like Jordan Taufua, we don’t need them. They keep the Samoan tribesmen waiting. I bet they are those Samoans who talk about pride in their Samoan heritage, but when it’s time to show it, they are a bunch of no-shows. Where were all these self-serving punks years before? 

They wait until the World Cup year to raise their hands for Samoa. If we have another disastrous World Cup this year, all of Samoa’s rugby union officials should resign.
