Litter literacy

How sad to note we can't read notice written on rubbish bins (FT 5/3/18).

We don't require any qualification to read and interpret to take action but a matter of common sense and self-pride for the country we live in.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness.

I congratulate the boys for the game against South Africa in Las Vegas.

However, I would like to remind the fans not to be too hasty in saying that Fiji will win the tournament.

There is a saying in the iTaukei language - sivi mada na koro qai kalu (Don't count your chickens before they hatch).

Stopping Baker

The only method of stopping a speedster is to tackle him before he starts thinking of spinning, side stepping or to make a pass.

The tackle made should be "sure shot" and a crunching one indeed. For the likes of US speedster Baker, that would probably be the best method I could think of, to contain him or probably send him to the sideline for rest.

Our players need not wait for him to make his first move. They need to make the first move and that is a bone crunching tackle.

Suli Tokalau,


Pacific allegiance

Prince Charles will visit Vanuatu in April during his Commonwealth Games tour to Australia. Let's hope and wish that the Prince of Wales will also make a surprise visit to Fiji. It's still a month away and anything can happen.

It would be so nice after a long time for a member of the Royal family to visit our shores again.

He will surely trace some of his memories the last years he was here, especially the yavirau (fish driving in the sea), the taralala/taura tale (iTaukei dance) and of course the famous Albert Park where he represented the Queen during the independence celebrations in 1970.

Let's cross our fingers.

Vili Yaranamua,


NZ 7s effort

I reply to Shamal Chand (FT-6/3).

Fiji has been lucky with a few dubious calls and ref assists to have slightly edged NZ 7s in their past two games after having been thumped big time in Sydney.I can just imagine the verbal response and facial expression Shamal would have had after minnows, Kenya and the high flying US Eagles put Fiji to sleep at the Vegas 7s?

Kaise bhat?
