Rugby marketing

Floyd Robinson,  Nasinu

Is there a need for a change in marketing international tests held at home?

Sadly, for some reason the hype, excitement and anticipation prior to the Chiefs versus Crusaders match was far superior in comparison to the excitement prior to the Fiji versus Italy test match.

Walking along McGregor Road hours before the Super Rugby match one observed super excitement among thousands of fans making their way to the ANZ Stadium in their favourite rugby jerseys and waving flags.

How can rugby authorities attract more pride and support from local fans?

One hopes that fans will come out in bigger numbers this weekend as the mighty Scottish team beams with confidence having created a major upset against the Wallabies.

The result of the match is anyone’s guess as results will depend upon the levels of motivation of players on either side of the rugby field.

Vinaka FijiCare

Munsami Naidu, Lautoka

I am writing this letter to appreciate the calibre, professionalism and the comportment that FijiCare agents have shown to me during my illness .

I underwent treatment at one of the best hospitals in India, the Metro Heart Institute at Faridabad. All the necessary expenses were accommodated by FijiCare Insurance Limited.

I am highly impressed with the services that FijiCare provided to me and I wish to express my sincere gratitude towards their support.

Also, I would like to thank the Government of the day for choosing FijiCare as our insurance provider.

I wish FijiCare all the best and I am sure that dedicated and considerate insurance companies like yours would prosper.

Developments in Tunuloa

Joji Toronibau, Tunuloa

While on an errand to my traditional abode last week, I found that there are a lot of developments happening in and around Tunuloa areas and its peripheries.

Recently, there were solar systems installed and now we have piping and restoration of water supply plus partial maintenance in four to five villages along the Tunuloa side of Natewa Bay.

All these resources and infrastructures are unloaded at Point A and ferried across the seas to Point B.

We desperately need a proper Government road.

Our school children are the most vulnerable to elements, the senior sick citizens and the transportation of root/cash crops to and from the point of pick-ups etcetera.

There is only a stretch left to link Wailevu Primary School and Napuka Secondary School where our school children can get easy excess to these road infrastructures and do away with man-horse tracks, wading across the river and across the sea to school and back.

A road is always the best option in case of strong winds and unfavourable weather conditions.

We do not have TV reception except if you buy a Sky Pacific plan.

And Vodafone/Innk and Digicel have intermittent receptions. Again, we wish to enjoy the same opportunities as enjoyed by most Fijians locally and abroad.

Please also note, that Police presence on wheels is most paramount to weed away illegal activities.

No response

Kirti Patel, Lautoka

Far too many times we read in newspapers of all the happenings. Some positive and some negative.

The worst thing is reading at the end of many article especially those that are negative that the response from the relevant authorities was not obtained.

We don’t even get a response on it after few days from the right people.

I believe there should be a follow up section.

Hopefully we get to see some changes in this ongoing trend.
