Who cares what the whole world thinks??? It’s for the Olympic Games... the games that’s about that!!! Where ev­ery ath­lete gets the chance to prove them­selves against the worlds elite. He rep­re­sented Fiji Bati and they made it to the Quar­ter fi­nals in the world cup... He stays in Aus­tralia but al­ways says he is Fi­jian through and through... And he feels hon­oured to be asked to rep­re­sent Fiji. Never seen any neg­a­tive feed back about his be­hav­iour on and off the field and is very fam­ily ori­en­tated... Just like Fi­jians were brought up to be... So Gary chill out and let na­ture take it’s course... If it was meant to be... It was meant to be... Can’t beat him??? Sup­port him .... #TosoViti #RioGold

Gary Martin

This is no cool. He is not re­ally a ‘Fi­jian’ when did he last live here...? .... the whole world is going to think Fiji is des­per­ate and can’t find lo­cal play­ers - so it has to be buy play­ers from over seas.

I think there are many other gifted and tal­ented Fi­jian 7’s play­ers more de­serv­ing of win­ning a medal for their coun­try than Jar­ryd Hayne

Tosh Tiko­vagone

I be­lieve it’s Cool my fren, Gary Martin!!! He al­ready proven to the world when he don the Fiji Bati Jer­sey back then in the World Cup... that means he can also play in the Rio Games. If you still not change your mind up??? Then, cross check your heart n mind!!!

I thing its fair enough to give ev­ery fi­jian player around the world a fair chance to par­tic­i­pate in Rio as this doesnt mean he is se­lected as con­firm by the coaches all over­seas play­ers will need to go in their nor­mal se­lec­tion cri­te­ria. This will bring com­pe­ti­tion and each and ev­ery player will give their best and so “sur­vival of the fittest “

GMartin ..... he wasn’t for monie he has more of that big-time ..... his de­ci­sion to joined is the love of his fam­ily coun­try n his roots ..... Jar­ryd Hayne yr de­ci­sion join­ing our team is enor­mous .... thankyou

When fiji brings in 1 over­seas player for the first time peo­ple start their neg­a­tiv­ity agsinst the teams look at oth­ers coun­tries there were n are some fi­jians who r play­ing then you dont bother
