North tour

The North­ern rugby tour, which ends af­ter the Ja­pan game is a must win; not only to a great stan­dard of skill, but show­ing to us the glo­ries spirit of chivalry in which real rugby can be played. We un­der­stand the last two games was not a glo­ri­ous spec­ta­cle. The play was dis­ap­point­ing and the score did not show the trend of it. The many in­for­mal­i­ties were a re­flec­tion on Fiji Rugby. Nikola Matawalu should start at scrumhalf; Josh Matavesi and Al­bert Vulivuli should be cut­ting out open­ings in mid­field or punt­ing across field or get­ting quickly to cover defence. Ja­pan, as ever, will con­tinue to show their abil­ity to up­set the great­est odds by sheer de­ter­mi­na­tion and in­spired per­for­mance. A per­sis­tent fea­ture of our Fi­jian rugby play would be a re­lent­less and ruth­less tack­ling against the Ja­panese. Give us some smile, boys!
