THE PACIFIC NATIONS HAVE BEEN UNFAIRLY TREATED BY THE RWC 2011 AND THE IRB GOONS.

Apisai Tokalautawa
MY DAYS AS A RUGBY UNION FAN MAYBE COMING TO AN END AFTER THE WAY THE PACIFIC NATIONS WERE TREATED AT 2011 RUGBY WORLD CUP.
THINK ABOUT IT :
1) At the very first game, Tonga was demolishing the the All Blacks scrum, if it was the other way around, NZ would have been awarded a penalty try without hesitation.
2) Tuilagi being fined $10,000 for for wearing the wong mouth guard, while England got away with changing the match football on two occasion and not receiving any penalty.
3) The way the ref spoke to the Samoan captain, showed alot of disrespect for a team made up of semi professionals who were giving the professionals a good run for their money.
And theres the Rokocoko and Sivivatu saga....where the duo could have rendered their services for Fiji after they were dropped from NZ team......alot of bureaucratic bullshit that disadvatages the Pacific Rugby Allaince.....
etc.....etc.....etc...
WHATS YOU TAKE????

TRUE!! TRUE!! TRUE!!!

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'.

I feel your pain ..If people had seen the game between Samoa vs Wales, they would have seen the bias decisions given by the ref in that game and to make it worse it was a "WELSHMEN" controlling the game that day..So the game is now gone next time a crucial game such as that we need a ref that will not be biased.. So long to the teams in the Quarter-finals this week, and may the best team win....
