Deadpool 2 – More crazier, hilarious and naughty DEADPOOL 2 is in town and screening at local cinemas. Compared with Deadpool 1 — Deadpool 2 is crazier, it’s hilarious and it’s naughty. It gets emotional. It gets controversial. It’s hard to explain in words apart from actually watching the movie. Some of the scenes are...

Blues outmuscled A QUALITY opposition such as Wellington taught the Blues a soccer lesson. Although the scoreline is hard to digest, we have to accept the fact that Wellington was a class. Lautoka struggled to contain the hosts who capitalised on defensive blunders and lapse in concentration. As space opened up, the opposition found a...

Fire in his eyes ALMOST every picture of Alasio Naduva, Fiji’s speedster in 7s — you will see the intensity in his face. In the Singapore final his picture (FT 3/5) is shown with the headline “Give me the ball” and he has fire in his eyes. To me, when he gets the ball, he...

Unlucky Suva SUVA could not beat Ba in their Vodafone Premier League encounter at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Sunday. But despite the draw, Suva leads the VPL standing.

Doing what’s right There are many reasons we fail to accomplish all we can or should in God’s work and the most common explanation for failure is that we stop doing what is right despite knowing it. It’s not always fun and exciting to do God’s will — it is simply doing right again and...

Cold weather IT’S the cold weather, you think grog sessions will stop? Not on your life. I went past a home in Waiyavi and all the groggers looked like Eskimos. All I heard was, “Io, mai dua na bilo.” Well, yes, you guessed it, I joined them and asked for a blanket. Hehe. ALLEN LOCKINGTON...

Thank you Lautoka I SALUTE the Lautoka soccer team for defying all odds and beating the Marist FC club at a jam-packed Lawson Tama Stadium. Praneel Naidu’s second-half screamer was enough to stun the 12 thousand-plus home fans as the Blues created history by qualifying for the OFC Champions League final. Lautoka has done everyone...
