I can’t believe how Blair, Kidwell, and especially Lowe, can’t understand why these four Tongan boys want to have the mana and privilege to play for their country. This is exactly what our Maori flag is all about, “tino rangatiratanga”, to have the mana to choose the path of our own destiny. This is also what our haka are about. Emotional reasoning and realisations descend upon us at the last minute sometimes.
Talking about “crawling over broken glass” to want to be in the Kiwis, Bromwich and Proctor would be willing candidates. How long must they pay for merely being “celebrities” in public? You guys should stop this negativity and support them all with no malice, and get on the job and bring the cup back.
