BEN’S ‘BEST BET’
Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi
This is not a misgiving critique or a fault -finding trip but who are Ben’s ‘best bet’ if fatigue is the only explanation after playing hard games one after another
I agree entirely with Peni Veidreyaki that they lack the killer instinct and allowed the Kenyans to dominate all facets of play. The great Kenyans who have played us for years stung us in Singapore from the start. They seem to appear from everwhere as if they had a trail trekker. They chased us down at all opportunity and we were eventually caught for the celebration. What a long hunt it took. Other worrying signals are the rate of simple mistakes committed, absence of speedsters, and moreso the lack of size as shown to us by defeats to Kenya and Samoa. Their sheer speed and aggression contributed to victory over us. It was like struggling through a Hurricane barrage. We just could not counter-fire justifying Peni’s reasons. But its reassuring that Nakarawa , Nayacalevu, Pio Tuwai and Jasa Veremalua will be included. Do not forget Masivesi and Nalaga. Everyone gets older and slower but its a wonder that Oscar matches younger players taking considerable punishment during the IRB series. He needs rest maybe the whole team too. Go Fiji Go
