RLWC playoffs

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva
Thursday, November 09, 2017

Wales coach John Kear is stating the obvious when he predicted that Australia will meet New Zealand or England in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup final, but to say that the Fiji Bati or any other tier two nation is not good enough to reach the top (Fiji One Online Sports news 7/11), has the odour of a sore 72-6 loser.

From the current RLWC pool games, one can predict that PNG, Tonga, Fiji Bati and Samoa are all on par with the tier one teams and we will not be surprised if one or two of them slip through into the grand final.

Coach John Kear has pointed out that the Fiji Bati does not have what it takes to reach the final of the RLWC, but the Bati players and all Fiji Bati supporters think otherwise.

Faith moves mountains and I believe that if the Fiji Bati continues to put God first, train and prepare well, it is possible for the world to witness the first tier two nation team to win the Rugby League World Cup.

The victory hymn at the crowning will send a message to the whole world that God is still in control and with Him, nothing is impossible.
