Don’t blame Crack­nell

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.
