Nadolo racially abused

Maciu Malo
Monday, February 05, 2018

FIJI Airways Flying Fijians flyer Nemani Nadolo is the latest Fijian player to be subjected to racial abuse while playing overseas.

The former Super Rugby player expressed his disappointment on Twitter while enjoying some time off rugby with his family at Montpellier.

In his twitter account Nadolo stated "Don't know how to take cause I don't speak French. I'm out in Montpellier with my family who came from overseas to see me. One supporter who is drunk said to me 'not bad for a monkey to win the game for MHR in Clermont. Now he was drunk but wow.

He continued " I'm over racism. The worst thing is they attack you when you out having a good time with your family —— only problem they are gutless. I thank Lord for the patience.

"Just saying racism in rugby is still the same. You have people degrading people, sex, race and religion.

Nadolo added on his twitter "Thanks guy for the kind words. Racism in this world is something I never been a fan of. I can't dwell on what's happened. Sometimes it's up to us to be better people and walk away from it."

In 2014, Nadolo also suffered the similar scenario at a Christchurch Bar after the Crusaders lost to the Waratahs in their Super Rugby encounter.

Meanwhile, other Fijian players who were also subjected to racial abuse while playing overseas are New Zealand-based players Peni Manumanuliwa and Sakenaca Aca.
