How can this be happening at the Samoa Rugby Union?

Dear Editor,

With regards to your news headline “S.R.U. Board member criticises decision,” myself and the majority of people in this civilised world are certainly baffled to comprehend how, in this day and age would such irresponsible action be committed by the Samoa Rugby Chief Executive Officer.

How can this happen?

Please Faleomavaega Vincent Fepuleā’i explain? The people of Samoa deserve an answer to the valid questions raised by Namulau’ulu Sami Leota, and now Seumanu Douglas Ngau Chung.

Look at the Manu Samoa current state of play; from number 7 in the world to over twice the worst less, due to this spooky operandi ragtag within the Samoa Rugby Union.

This is the wrecking ball lackadaisical meme that is obliterating the country’s national team. Faleomavaega should go.

I really want to know what international experience Steve Jackson has, compared to Fuimaono Titimaea Tafua who has a proven record.

The Manu Samoa is a rugby team that belongs to a country named Samoa.

And if World Rugby threatens you to withdraw its financial support, then tell them to shuffle their cash where the sun doesn’t shine.

You, Faleomavaega Vincent Fepuleā’i, is appointed to think.

Yes THINK where to get the money to help develop the country’s rugby team. You were appointed not to rest on your laurel but go to China or Japan or Russia until the U.S. can see the threat within and come to the fold.

Faleomavaega, if the kitchen is too hot for you, then get the hell out.

This is disgusting for you to endorse a coach who was only coaching at primer one level while Fuimaono Titimaea Tafua has a proven international coaching accolade; as he has just managed to qualify Manu Samoa for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

The Samoa Rugby Union should call an urgent meeting let go of  Vincent Fepuleā’i and his coach Steve Jackson.

The position for Manu Samoa head coach is not required to be re-advertised but for Samoa Rugby Union Board to automatically appoint Fuimaono Titimaea Tafua who holds a proven record as an international coach to take Manu Samoa where it once had belong.

With my utmost disgust,


Tofaeono Misātauveve Iosefo Joseph Hollywood
