Rugby result reflects Samoa today

19 July 2017

Dear Fiapa’i Kalahari,

Re: Fiji beats Samoa

That was a thrashing we haven’t seen in a long time not counting NZ and Australia. 

We are now firmly established at the bottom of the barrel in the Pacific rugby and sadly will continue to fall. 

We have a disappointing Sevens team, a humiliating 15s team and sadly the signs are there for a continuing failure in our game.

The mind game or the heart is not there and any hopeful words is not gonna cut it so I’m not gonna say anything today.

 Confidence is a product of a clean spirit or mana and we don’t have it. 

We have a sick country, a sick people, and it shows in a sick rugby team. 

Our collective spirit as a people is nothing but fiapoko and faamaualuga and these are the products of it. 

We don’t deserve to be in the World Cup this time around.
