"It would be nice if we could have a public holiday to make everyone in Samoa happy. whether or not we win or not, we should still have one, just one day for everyone to celebrate our TOA Samoa boys".

"Our country should show and appreciate the hard work that these sons of Samoa have done for our country. They have made known to the world our small country, bringing together all the Samoans scattered across the globe".

Vinraette Tominiko, 20, Vaivase

"You know, I think we should because it's going to be the first time that Samoa been in the final, and play before the entire world. It signifies that we actually support them who are from our country and that we appreciate their hard work on the field".

Logouli Uiese, 52, Samalaiulu - Savaii

"This is for the support for the children of Samoa and the boys who will be vying for the rugby league world cup championship. We have to have a public holiday that's if we win the world cup. There should be a day where we can come together and back our boys who are going to fight in this battle against Australia".

Vii Reupena, 25, Vailele Uta

"Yes! of course we should have a public holiday, win or lose. This will be the first time we make it to the finals in fact this is the first time any Pacific Island has made it to the finals. Faamalosi boys and GO the TOA!".

Muriel Schuster, 31, Vaimoso

"We should if we win, and if we don't win I don't think we should. Maybe a half day or a half-public holiday. All the best TOA, you go this and bring home that cup".
