FOR once, I agree with Dan in fixing the 7s players’ terms and conditions of contract (FT 14/3).
You’re absolutely correct my boy.
AS I was travelling to Nausori the other day during rush hour, I noticed the congestion of traffic was confined to the major centres such as Makoi, Valelevu, the Four Miles area, Three Miles and in the Samabula areas.
In between these choke points the traffic was clear and the queue was centered around the traffic lights, so maybe the big wigs can look into that while we wait for the train option.
Bypass roads such as I have stated before could be an option and we can all have the big trucks to use them and have toll booths so it can help the maintenance.
So commuters can go through these bypass roads as they come off the major centres and leave the residential areas free of heavy traffic.
Just a thought as we prepare ourselves for another weekend.
THE battle between the Fiji Warriors and Junior Japan was a battle of two halves.
Fiji dominated the first and the Junior Cherry Blossoms came out hunting in the second.
However, our gallant Warriors did enough to hold on to the lead and finish unbeaten after two rounds.
Earlier, Samoa A had thrashed the Ikale Tahi, who had an earlier battle against TC Gita, and found the Samoan kitchen too hot to handle.
The young Warriors have shown tremendous promise and the future of 15s looks bright.
Hats off to the coaching staff members for the efforts in moulding the team and producing a winning combination and I am positive that the likes of Voka, Rarasea, Vularika, Lomani, Vugakoto, Tawalo and Ratuva would be eyed to make up the senior squad and Fiji Airways Drua side.
All the best for the final battle against Tonga – Fiji Warriors!

THE Olympic 7s gold medal is already in the bag.
Imagine, if we also win the 2017-2018 HSBC Sevens World Series, next month’s Commonwealth 7s and the July rugby 7s World Cup.
