Jerry Tuwai

Jerry Tuwai copped some flack in the last games. Well, yours truly also said a few things.

I have been watching Fiji's games on Youtube and especially Jerry's performances. He is a man mountain in my book.

He packs more than what most of us couch potatoes can do.

He tackles guys almost twice his size.

We go into the next leg of the 7s series and I do hope that people will appreciate the efforts of the boys, the coaching staff members and more.

We have to acknowledge the support of the people who follow the team and we see them in blue wigs and those who fly Fiji's noble banner blue, no matter what the outcome is.

We are quick to find fault when we lose, OK, it's human. But let's support our boys because they sacrifice a lot, the game is not the same any more.

Have you been tackled and trodden on in a scrum?

Have you gotten the wind knocked out of you when you least expect it?

And may I permit you all to shake the tree that holds the boys' contracts.
