Loss to Samoa

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

Shad Al­faz Ali, Navua

It was shock­ing to see our team lose to Samoa in highly dra­matic fash­ion hav­ing led 19-7 at one point and then 26-7.

Judg­ing by the first- half per­for­mance and the de­mo­li­tion of Samoa 24 hours ear­lier, it was hard to be­lieve the sec­ond-half could go so hor­ri­bly wrong. While we may say the over­seas­based play­ers need more time to gel es­pe­cially in de­fence, I still be­lieve they are the real deal in our quest for gold. We cannot re­place the prow­ess of Tuisova, Nakarawa and Nay­a­calevu. All the best to Ben and the brigade in the Lon­don 7s.
