League loy­al­ties

The New Zealand Herald - - EDITORIAL & LETTERS -

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.

Dan Korewha, Kaikohe.
