It is now three weeks after our 7s rugby team’s victory in Rio and the celebrations still continue. I am sure that it will continue for weeks and months at different venues across the country and our heroes very much deserved it But please let us not forget all the members of the 24 players in the training squad. Without them pushing our heroes for a seat on that plane to Rio, it would have been difficult to win gold. Ben Ryan admitted having sleepless nights in trying to decide who to choose, which means that these ‘un-chosen players’ were almost just as good as our heroes. When our heroes take up contracts offshore this year, we will fall back on these unchosen players to defend our IRB Series title. Let us make them feel part of these celebration and also give them gifts and monetary awards as well for the great contribution they have done. To Nemani Nagusa, Josua Vici, Alivereti Veitokani, Isake Katonibau, Pio Tuwai, Nasilasila, Amenoni Nayacalevu, Jarryd Hayne and a few whose names I missed, your contribution will be etched in our memories in years to come because you played a vital role in this victory.
