Don’t change Education

Daya Wati, Nausori

I am happy that former Education Minister Mahendra Reddy was acquitted. But, with elections around the corner, it will be counter productive to give him back the Education portfolio.

Besides the Attorney-General is doing a very good job with the much needed reform of the ministry and he does not have any baggage associated with the very important ministry. He should continue in the position for the next couple of months and complete the reform.

A lot of teachers are also of the view that Mr Reddy should not be given the Education portfolio. It is a very important ministry and the future of our children depends on it.

Semifinal loss

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

A friend of ours kicked and broke a vase after our semi-final loss to South Africa.

Good thing the lady of the house was asleep or we would have been chased out with our basin of grog!

Fiji Drua boys

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

There were complaints raised when the names of the Fiji Drua captain John Stewart and team mate Eroni Sau were included in the Fiji Airways Sevens team to the first two legs of the 2017/18 HSBC Sevens World Series.

The Drua boys were drafted in without going through the hard yards that all sevens players vying to wear the Fiji jersey goes through.

I believe that after Day 1 at the Dubai Sevens, we can all say that Coach Baber made the right call, because both of the Drua boys shone like stars.

John Stewart was really impressive in the final pool game against Australia and his vision to run from the left of the ruck to the right and receive that timely pass from captain Jerry Tuwai, to score the winning try at full-time was just glorious stuff.

Poor Performance at Dubai

Spencer Robinson, Suva

The Fiji Airways Men’s 7s team did not perform to the level expected by the fans as they were bundled out of the cup semi-final after losing to Blitzboks 12-7.

To make it worse they went down 28-21 to England in the third place playoffs.

Coach Gareth Barber needs to relook at the strategies before the Cape Town Sevens this week as the World Cup is in June next year and a poor start in the IRB Sevens Series could mean that Fiji may not be in the right form ahead of the World Cup preparations.

In comparison to Ben Ryan the current coach is not performing because by now Ryan proved that Fiji was in good hands ahead of Rio Olympics as they won tournaments with great play.

I request Fiji Rugby Union to relook at a strategy before we miss out at World Cup Sevens tournament in June next year.

Reddy in the clear

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

His conscience was clear from the start.

He resigned to allow justice to take its course in our court of law.

He is now cleared of the allegations levelled against him by the many critics who opposed the good deeds our FijiFirst Government was inclusively achieving for all.

I take my hat off for the Kai Nawaicoba from Yako, Nadroga.

He made a very principled stand and has set standards for others who aspire to become politicians.

He resigned to clear his name and a big vinaka vakalevu to his wife for standing strong to her oath and to the teaching profession.

You have certainly showed the way!
