BTL: 7th July, 2019


In the past we have heard of rowdy parents barracking for their sons team during Kaji Rugby or oragnised schools rugby competitions in Suva. One could hear parents with their wild cheers, uttering words like, vakamatea qori, (kill that one), mokuta qori (Hit that one) and the hurling of all kinds of verbal abuse went on. Some directed to the man in the middle (referee) as well.

But yesterday, news surfaced that it was also happening in the Northern Division. For the first time during an Under-17 rugby playoff which attracted huge attention violence reared its ugly head. Parents of each team took to the ground and fought with each other. Mother against mother while the fathers threw fists at each other over some disagreement. Players also fought during the game. BTL has been informed that Police will conduct an investigation into this matter because some students and parents were on the receiving end.

Talk about poor sportsmanship and bad example. Where were the noble teachers anyways.

Government Vehicle Drivers

All Government vehicles should have Global Positioning System (GPS) installed in them. It is sad to note that in the Northern Division drivers of government vehicles are fond of infringing traffic road rules. One vehicle was seen using a back street and actually driving in the opposite direction without even putting the hazard lights on to alert other roadusers. This infringement caused traffic problems. Government vehicle drivers should not abuse their privilege of driving what belongs to the taxpayers and the Government.
