Fiji's Family Network
I think we should start considering the option of forming the Pacific Islanders team to represent the three nation.A very strong one where all our three nation can chip in on money for one strong dream team that will have these nations running for their lives..With these type of politics i dont think any of our nation individually will be able to win the 15s rugby world cup in this generation or lifetime . All these nations example,England,South Africa,Australia,New Zealand,Canada,Argentina ,Wales,and the upcoming nations Russia,USA,Italy etc are bigger in size and have the money and bigger size in population to choose different varieties of players from.Whereas for us ,since we are small islands small population,we should use our head and combine together .
Not only will these combined effort revolutnise rugby ,but also in other areas of life .Vinaka
There is actually a Pacific Islanders Rugby Team composed of Tongans Samoans and Fijians that had been doing Tours in the last few years.
There were rumours about an attempt for them to join the Tri-Nations comp but SANZAR were not interested (vakaraitaki ga ni rivarivabi de ra qai vakamaduataki). Maybe if Fiji had done well in this RWC like the Samoans and Tongans, the PIR Team profile would have been greatly boosted.
SANZAR opted for Argentina (Pumas) to join them in 2012 to make the comp '4-Nation Competition'.
