Fair share We should retrospectively pay our 7s rugby warriors a fair share under their contract backdated to January. We can't continue to tell them after the miraculous comeback in Hamilton "keep well and keep warm". They've done the job! If they "are to be on top of their game" as the editor in chief Fred Wesley says (FT 6/1), the FRU must do this. Amenatave Yaconisau Palm Drive, Delainavesi

Quiz time

WHY are bedroom doors built in our homes?

A. For security reasons;

B. For privacy reasons; and

C. For hanging towels.

A and B maybe practical answers but C is the most practised one.

Two years later

On February 20 it will be two years since Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston devastated Fiji. We still have many families who still live in tents around the country. Some of them live in the middle of Lautoka City and I have seen many in Tavua, Rakiraki and some other places. What can the Government and opposition do to help them?

Billboards

I noticed big billboards along the Suva to Nausori corridor stating "More students in schools and universities than ever before". I think that some more billboards should be placed nationwide stating "More traffic jams on our roads than ever before".

Hamilton 7s

Gareth Baber you are hired. No questions asked. Need to sort out your Fijian name as soon as possible. Any suggestions?

Well done Fiji.

Amazing feat

Congratulations to Gareth Baber and the boys. A job well done! I believe Baber has injected a new sense of belief in our boys. Coming from behind in the three matches and winning and upsetting the applecart is an amazing feat. I believe fans played a big part and were the x-factor for the team. Now where are the critics of Baber and the team?

Sweet victory

Vinaka vakalevu boys for bringing joy and smiles to your fans in Fiji and abroad. What a sweet victory it was and may God continue to use and bless you all.

Good feedback

Critics are important. They give you feedback on what you are doing and how you are doing it.

Accept them. Now there will be the non-constructive critics, disregard them and move on.

But take the constructive ones seriously. You never know you may just improve your style.
