League favour

Floyd Robinson, Nasinu

Did the Fiji Bati do New Zealand a rugby league favour?

Almost effectively immediately after defeat to Fiji, they initiated a review process on the management of New Zealand Rugby League including the possibility of an expatriate coach.

Well, for now the second defeat to a Pacific team must be hard to swallow.

Meanwhile, congratulations to the Fiji Bati side for making it to the semi-final again.

Overall, their performance has been good with improvements to defence and teamwork.

Against Australia, we paid the price for making mistakes against a super side.

The bigger question is how we start preparing for the next world cup and more importantly, identifying more opportunities for our local-based players who deserve the experience of playing high quality rugby league outside of Fiji.
