Accepting outcomes

Inoke Tuirara, Trafalgar, Dannevirke

MR Yaconisau's comment (8/2) made perfect sense. I wonder how many of our innumerable fussy armchair critics have ever had a feel of the oval ball.

It seems like they are always ready to censure the boys whenever the results are contradictory to our expectations.

Long gone are the days whereby Fiji used to be second to none in this ruthless game.

It would be highly appreciated if we are content with whatever the outcome is.

By the way, where were these unwarranted critics when the coaching position was advertised? Anyway, to Donald, don't let the ABs 8s team ruin your mood.

But let me tell you, if that was Fiji having eight men on the field, oh boy.

An urgent meeting would have been held immediately after that game and disciplinary actions would have been taken prior to their next game.

It reminds me of Sakenasa Aca's comments while in tears after one of his club games in Christchurch. He stated that colour bar existed on the rugby field as well.

Evidently in the international rugby arena, our skin colour stacks us into the second-class rack which leaves us with subservient treatment.

I must say that there are moments when it sucks to be dark.

I do not mind though, not at all. I am proud to be a black person.
