Cracker of a Match

Floyd Robinson,Toorak

The two matches between the Maori All Blacks and Flying Fijians are critical.

Historically speaking they have been important gauges to the Rugby World Cups.

The last two times we played against the All Blacks Maori side, we did not win but performed well at the Rugby World Cup tournaments which were few months away.

This time around, the Flying Fijians have an opportunity to change the course of history by defeating the Maori All Blacks and causing upset with their pool at the Word Cup which some have termed as the pool of death.

All in all, these will be two exciting matches because the Maori All Blacks will want to maintain their winning record while the Flying Fijians will want to register a long overdue victory. Looking forward to this cracker of a match in Suva and beyond that, the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Man Of Action

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

I thank Mr Tukai Lagonilakeba for visiting Atelaite Koto and children and I like what he said “I believe this is religion and a good service to God”.

There is an old story about a pastor at a small country church in England, who along with several of his children came down with the mumps.

At church on Sunday they announced a prayer meeting would be held outside the pastor’s house.

At the appointed time, several members gathered around the parsonage, and were getting ready to pray when a teenage boy drove up with a loaded wagon.

He started unloading food—potatoes, bacon, flour and other staples.

One man asked, “What are you doing?” The boy replied, “Pa said I should bring our prayers.”

There are times when the only possible solution is a direct miracle from God.

But there are other times when there are things we could do to help with the problem.

In those situations, we need to “bring our prayers” in a practical way.

It is with some amusement that I have noticed Police officers on motorbikes. Recently, the UN Secretary General came to Fiji and while on  Flagstaff road Suva, some officers rudely were telling motorists to go to the side of the road.

Now here comes an issue of taxpayers money.

Early morning people are rushing towards their working sites. The Fiji Police Force needs to inform people about this well ahead. They cannot just barge in from the back and say hey move your vehicle to the side.  The drivers get panicked and what if someone lands their vehicle in drains.

The Police need to follow road rules as well.

When they are on the right hand side of the lane why block the other lanes and tell other motorists on the opposite side to move away. In the end the taxpayers pay for the roads and the wages of Police. Road rules are for all. Stop being rude to motorists and plan your routes for delegates.

LTA rules are for all road users and should be followed by all. It doesn’t matter who the driver is. Please follow road rules.
