Watch out Senatla

Avesi Kalokalo, Yalalevu, Ba

When I saw Joeli Lutumailagi blitz past Seabelo Senatla, that was consolation enough and more for me after we lost fairly to a better side.

Before the final though, I had secretly known that we would lose judging by South Africa’s defence strategy against our budding team.

But I dared not say it aloud, lest I be mauled by the squad up in Tauvegavega, Ba, where we had converged to watch.

Defence really is a good offence.

However, it won’t be long until our new boys blend in well with our old boys and will prove again that our natural flair and sand dunes can beat a $2m budget training programme.

I hope Fiji meets South Africa again in the final this weekend so that before Senatla leaves the 7s game, he will have nightmares of the Fijian warriors for the rest of his professional career

Toso Viti!

 

 

Toso Viti Toso!

Herleen Emily Kumar,  Nadi

With Fiji’s loss in the Wellington 7s against the Blitzboks, no doubt our national side would be aiming for a win this weekend in the Sydney 7s.

We’ve got a series of tournaments to go and we may probably win the series yet again.

We are no one to judge and play the blame-game with the team yet, as they may be trying to adjust and adapt to the new coach.

However, our eyes would be on some of the top sevens players and would rather, anticipate to watch first hand Joeli Lutumailagi and Seabelo Senatla take the 100m race again.

Nonetheless, we’ve already played our cards in the Rio Olympics and need not prove the world how crazy we are when it comes to rugby.

Maybe other sevens team might play rugby because they want to win or they want to play the trump to be on the top.

However, Fiji plays rugby like no other country plays.

We play rugby for passion, hobby, love and to show the world that 7s rugby is one game that keeps you on your feet. All the best boys!

And like we say it Fijian style: Toso Viti toso!

 

 

Armchair critics

Wise Muavono,   Lautoka

Rugby is just not about winning. Rugby helps build character in all players because it teaches you the meaning of having good sportsmanship.

It also boosts self-esteem and self confidence. It helps to improve social skills, tolerance, leadership, physical development, confidence, teamwork, discipline and how to deal with defeat.

Most obviously they do not know much or nothing about rugby. They’re just armchair critics.

 

 

 

Letter from a teacher to parents

Joji Koroibanuve,  Nasinu

A teacher’s letter to parents has gained a lot of attention. It was said to have come from Portugal. No matter the origin, the letter is something we ought to take time to think about.

A teacher’s letter to the parents of his students: Dear parents, we would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.

It’s also at home that children learn to be honest, to be on time, diligent, show friends their sympathy, as well as utmost respect for their elders and all teachers.

Home is also where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how and where to properly dispose of garbage.

Home is also where they learn to be organised, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not ok to touch others.

Here at school, on the other hand, we teach language, maths, history, geography, physics, sciences, accounting, commerce, technologies, etc.

We only reinforce the education that children receive at home from their parents.
