Opposition performance

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi, Suva Contrary to Nemani Delaibatiki’s analysis

on Opposition MPs (Fiji Sun 12/6), I think they are helpless pawns and not strong as assumed.

Surely, they can only make noises and at- tack Government policies. They don’t have the number to outvote any disliked Bill ac- cording to Section 69 of the Constitution.

How can they contribute effectively?

Consistency the key

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

Success doesn’t come from what you do right occasionally, it comes from what you do right consistently.

Fiji finished second to South Africa in the World Sevens Series. South Africa won the Paris 7s to clinch the title, despite Fiji win- ning five gold medals.

We were simply not consistent when the series started. Sometimes you win a tourna- ment, sometimes you don’t.

As far as winning the world rugby 7s series goes, you have to make sure you stay in the top mix and at least reach the semifinals in all the tournaments. This is exactly how the Blitzbokke operate and that’s how they got the title.

Jerry Tuwai in his humility admitted mak- ing a mistake, but we all know it was not in- tentional.

Gareth Baber has developed a wonderful team and winning five tournaments is no mean feat.

Iamconfident,comethenextserieswewill continue to strive for a better result.

Every team is looking for something that will give them the edge over their opponents. We must not forget to get the most impor- tant ingredient for success in winning the

series. It’s consistency.
As the saying goes, it is water under the

bridge now and the 2017-2018 series was a memorable one.

“Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan”. Let’s continue supporting the boys and coach.

Hold your heads high, stick your chest out. It was an awesome performance and you can still get the World Cup 7s.

Jerry, Baber and the team it gets dark sometimes, but morning certainly comes.

7s series

Pranil Ram, Votualevu, Nadi
It wasn’t to be, we gave everything to win

the 2017-2018 series, but it wasn’t enough.
A single mistake sometimes changes the

whole complexion of the game.
England played it really smart and spoiled

our party.
We waited in great anticipation that other

results fall in favour, but that wasn’t to be. What really was peculiar about this series was that the winner was decided in the last

tournament and as well in the last match. This is the beauty of the sevens rugby

these days. Very unpredictable.
South Africa really stepped up their game

in the semifinal and it seemed like they wanted it more.

Hats off to our boys for coming out second best. It requires huge sacrifices to be away from families and giving it all for your coun- try.

To some of our rugby enthusiasts please

let’s stop whining. The 7s series is done dusted.

The World Cup Sevens is just around the corner.

Let’s reinvigorate our players so that they once again rise up to the new challenge.

World Cup

Wise Muavono, Balawa, Lautoka
They may have won the series, but we will

win the World Cup Sevens. That is a fact.

No civic pride

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Namaka, Nadi

We look and sound like idiots and fools when we express our disappointment and disgust at the amount of rubbish thrown everywhere all over the country and it is not working.

Driving past FNU Nadi there is a bus shel- ter that is mostly used by their students, apart from the public.

It is strewn with rubbish from students who use the shelter and the same can be said for other education institutions on the road- side around the Western Division.

Can the principals and school heads please kindly make it a point to ensure that gar- bage is cleared because it is part of their school identity?

It is an eyesore!

Or better still educate the children to put their rubbish in a bin.

This is a matter of civic pride for all Fiji- ans. Cleanliness is next to godliness.
