Don’t blame Cracknell
Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi
A letter writer has blamed Chris Cracknell for the Fijiana 7s women’s loss at the Rio Olympics. Our Fijiana women’s team must be given credit for qualifying for the Rio Olympics, it is the first time for both men and women rugby in an Olympics. My dear writer can be forgiven for not having played international rugby at that level; Cracknell has captained England at the 7s rugby’s many world tournaments and the women’s Fijiana participation alone speaks volumes. Fiji’s gold medal was never achieved and built in a day and I feel the letter writer should apologise to the families of our women’s team including the officials. They have set a standard and are an inspiration to future Fijian Olympians.
