Pacific teams and traditional war cry

Lawrence Wara, Suva
Wednesday, November 01, 2017

Well the 2017 RLWC has started off with some concerns as most teams had injuries in their first outing which tells us that this year's world cup will be a real cracker.

Even the pace of the first game was exhilarating to watch, and then to be mesmerised by our very own Bati on Saturday night was just too good.

But I wouldn't start singing the Blues just yet as our defence is yet to be tested, but to the boys thanks for the good game and keep it up.

Now something that stood out is how other Pacific teams are trying to emulate the fierceness of the New Zealand haka, what with our welcoming ceremony at GPH for Big Mel and the Kangaroos, and both Samoa and Tonga modifying their Manu Samoa and Sipi Tau to resemble the All Blacks Kapa o Pango, but hey I could be over reading into it a bit, but one thing is certain our Pacific teams are going to show up this year and be counted.

Go Fiji Bati.
