Bula Tom, noqu cau lailai ga ..stick to Ben Ryans Recipe..and that is to ensure 1) the boys are physically fit 2) the boys are taught to be mentally smart and 3) be part/one with them Spiritually...kena levu

Dina Taucoko Waisake.

The boys have 1 already but without 2 and 3 the 1 just worn out and they looked fartigue on the field.


Currently the boys have nothing, ZERO , they only have the Individual Natural Talent..watching the last four Series..the boys are weak in counter rucks, slow in supporting the ball carrier, not winning any kick offs, weak in the scrums,there is no speed,too many weak tackling causing too many yellow cards,lack of communication on the field, they are totally lost when under pressure..kena levu

Bula Tom, dua ga noqu cau:

If Baber cannot maintain or improve on the standard set by Ben Ryan, should he then be subjected to the same scrutiny the players are subjected to? In other words if his performance isn't up to scratch should he be shown the door?

Why persevere with someone who's not producing the result we expected.

Vinaka Joe.


It seems like Baber is being remote control from outside the field somewhere.


He doesn’t know when to bring in replacement player and he doesn’t know what to tell the boys during half time breaks.


Someone is dictating what to be done and if he (Baber) let that person to control him than he won’t be able succeed in any tournament.

Bula Tom, au tokoni Joe saraga vakalevu, If he doesn't has a win in the Series, chop him..the 7s Fiji Team is the IRB / World / Olympic Champion and for us to accept or  just say go with the flow and be patient/wait for them to Gell, this is a poor mentality of Sportsperson who wants to be a Champions da na qai vaka tuga na soata gauna ga e kaukauwa kina na ua da toso e liu..

Vinaka Waisake.
In order to move forward we have to accept facts apart from the buzz world.
Now the fact is that all other teams in the series now knows how to play good sevens. That is the reality.

Fiji can only win with seasoned players combined with raw talents thrown in the mix.
But Fiji have been doing well reaching finals in the series even with the new boys. It is development at its best. Forget the seasoned players for they have attained contracts overseas which should have been the ultimate goal of every rugby players.

Just an example: Nadroga does not have a Level 2 or Level 3 coach in Esala Nauga. But they have a very good development mechanism in place that now it has come to a time when they field different set of team every week but they still managed to retain the Farebrother and Skipper cup.

Seruvakula did not do well last year in local competition even though he has a Level 3 coaching certificate. He took a Fiji team late last year which comprised of 13 seasoned players from Nadroga. They did very well compared to the Fiji test team which toured a few weeks later. So development is also very important in order to maintain our standings while not losing touch with reality.

Fiji won in Hong Kong.

Thanks to the Fiji Sun for rightly  taking the blame off Gareth Baber baleta e sega sara ga nona leqa.

Hats off to the coach and the ice man. 

They finally gets their acts together and they demolished the mighty South Africa.

Although it is a bit to late for the overall Title, but with the way Fiji played in Hong Kong they can be re-assured of the remaining legs title. 


Ice Man prove himself in HK despite being critised by many on his selection back into the team.

'Silent tears'

Fiji 7s rugby player Jerry Tuwai has opened up about the negative
comments on
social media.

FIJI sevens halfback Jerry Tuwai has pleaded with Fijians to respect the players and their families even when they lose a series or an international tournament.

Foul language, criticisms and swears cast at our national heroes on social media, Tuwai said, caused a lot of hurt to the players, who would only look at each other during training sessions and shed silent tears.

He said the pain of reading such degrading comments about them and their families on social media sites would only show on the players' faces.

During an interview with this newspaper at Fiji Link's third birthday celebration in Labasa on Friday night, Tuwai said the players had been injured, hurt and some were on medication because of the impact of the games.

"When Fiji wins, we all win but when Fiji loses, only the players lose and we feel that because we are not supported or thanked or praised for playing tough matches," he said.

"We feel the pain of our

injuries and muscle tear or broken bones and it is even worse when our people back home criticise us and swear at us and our families on social media.

"I have seen swears directed to me and my family and other players as well have seen Fijians swearing at them on social media and swearing at their fathers and mothers.

"What have we done wrong to deserve this? We have been injured all because of the love of our nation but I am asking Fijians to show more respect for the players. We and our families don't deserve to be sworn at

on social media. But we deserve all your support and prayers."

Tuwai said whenever they faced a tough opponent while on tour, the players would joke around saying they had to win the match or face getting chased out of Fiji.

"It has come to that extent and the players will joke about being chased out of Fiji if we lose the match," he said.

"We don't have an easy task and we accept that fans won't take defeat easily as the answer but want a win all the time.

"But the fans also need to know we are humans just like them and we also make mistakes. We can't win all the time and especially when all the rugby sevens teams around the world are developed like Canada, which is a good team."

With preparation in progress for the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 and Commonwealth Games, Tuwai has asked for the prayers and support of all Fijians.

And he has also pleaded with fans to be patient and give their coach, Gareth Baber, a chance.

"He is a good coach and our loss in this series is nothing new. If you look at Fiji's sevens history, we never won any series for a long time before Ben Ryan came and even when he started, we didn't win a series in the beginning," he said.

"It is the same with Baber. Let us give him a chance because he has what it takes to make a difference."
