WE deeply appreciate the performance of our sevens team and their awesome victories. A lot of people criticised this same team prior to their victories.
My concern is, are these people earning enough to sustain their respective families?
Players such as Jerry Tuwai, Jasa Veremalua and Ravouvou will no doubt retire in a few years time. They have sacrificed a lot for the country.
Are they financially ready to take care of their families after rugby? Do they earn enough?
These are local players who have contracts only in the duration of the series.
You bleed, get bruised and your family gets all sorts of criticism. Do these players earn enough?
It’s easy to say that they need to play for pride and Fiji but the bottom line is they have families to look after.
