    Wtvr ever happened to Fiji ?!

    Yeah I saw Sorovaki for Taranaki last year, good thing about him is he's only 22 as well. But I think Fiji might be putting more onus on Drua players over Mitre 10 Cup players, even though Mitre 10 Cup looks like its a higher level than the NRC. Usually Island players in the Mitre 10 Cup hold...

    Wtvr ever happened to Fiji ?!

    Fiji Drua doing great, Fiji Rugby is doing well atm. Fiji Drua just thrashed the top team and defending champions Perth Spirit today 41 - 5. This makes me wonder about what the level of the Aussie teams are at though. Peceli Nacebe is looking like a future star at 10, such a shame he got...

    Tongan rugby

    Tonga have beaten France before in the World Cup and almost beat South Africa in 07. On their day they can beat anyone.

    Test Match 3: All Blacks v British & Irish Lions (Auckland)

    I don't like it when anyone does it, but that was the most obvious case I've ever seen. I can't believe the ref seriously awarded a penalty for that.

    Test Match 3: All Blacks v British & Irish Lions (Auckland)

    Ah man kind of a let down to have it drawn, feels like a loss. Oh well. Perhaps time to give the kicking duties to Jordie? Jordie was quite brilliant, perhaps time for Ben Smith to move over. I would also like to see Lima Sopoaga finally get a start this year as well.

    Test Match 3: All Blacks v British & Irish Lions (Auckland)

    Two stupid penaltys in a row from the ref. Lions prop angling in the scrum. Then the halfback deliberately knocks the ball on pretending the All Blacks player was in his way. Somehow this is a penalty? Just like last week.

    June International Tests: Fiji vs. Scotland (24/06/2017)

    Fiji win 27 - 22 Really wasn't expecting that, but I was hoping. Great win for Fiji, first over Scotland since 1998. Really knife on edge stuff, a couple nervous moments and brain explosions from Fiji where it could have turned. But thankfully we got the win. Good stuff from Tawake, the local...

    June International Tests: Fiji vs. Scotland (24/06/2017)

    Half Time: Fiji 11 Scotland 7 Only caught the last 15 mins. Scotland could still turn it around if they keep doing those driving mauls. Referee has handed out 3 yellow cards already, could see more if Scotland keep doing those tactics. Also saw them doing the same offside tactic Italy did...

    June International Tests: Fiji vs. Scotland (24/06/2017)

    Okay team for Fiji. Mckee is resting some players and trying others. Tuisova will make his debut at 15's for Fiji, that will be a big plus. Osborne joins the team, but imo Tim Nagusa is better, but Mckee is resting Nagusa after two good games. Unfortunately Botia has gone awol. Not sure why...

    June International Tests: Fiji vs. Italy (18/06/2017)

    I don't know much about the Italians and didn't see their game last week but the commentator was saying their backline was more adventurous than last week. They did make a few good breaks. Here's the full game:

    June International Tests: Fiji vs. Italy (18/06/2017)

    Exciting game, 3 great tries from Fiji, but a lot of mistakes too that nearly cost them the game. Great way to finish the game having to go from their own line then winning it with a last minute drop goal from Volavola

    June International Tests: Fiji vs. Italy (18/06/2017)

    Fijis got an inexperienced halfback starting too, Matawalu on the bench for some reason. Fiji named a weaker side than the one from the Australia game imo Fiji: 15 Kini Murimurivalu, 14 Timoci Nagusa, 13 Jale Vatubua, 12 Eroni Vasiteri, 11 Vereniki Goneva, 10 Ben Volavola, 9 Serupepeli...

    June International Tests: Australia vs. Fiji (10/06/2017)

    Tuisova arrived late after being in the Top 14 final, Botia also arrived late. Maybe they were just resting him. Are you talking about Naiyaravoro? He was selected for Fiji for the 2015 world cup, then a week later Wallabies named him in their team so he chose to play for Australia. Australia...

    [November Tests 2016 EOYT] Fiji vs. Japan (26/11/2016)

    If Levani Botia wasn't there Fiji might have lost this game. Botia was involved in 4 out of 5 of Fiji's tries. First try was from his perfectly timed tackle on the Japanese player as he was kicking. Idk if any other player would have got there. Second try was from a powerful fend and run, his...

    [November Tests 2016 EOYT] Fiji vs. Japan (26/11/2016)

    Fiji 38 - 25 I was expecting it to be closer than that and I had Japan as favourites to win as well. Fiji played most of the game with 14 men, a shame for Yato cause he's a good player. But Fiji showed good character to not close down after he was red carded. This game shows the potential Fiji...

    [November Tests 2016 EOYT] England vs. Fiji (19/11/2016)

    HAHAHAHA you English fans are funny. You guys thrashed us and you're still not happy. As for Roko, I don't know what else more he could have done. The commentators did seem to be hyping the **** outta him, talking about him every 5 mins, talking about him at half time and awarding him man of...

    Jarryd Hayne quiets NFL to join Fiji Sevens

    Hayne has potential, there was a couple times where he beat 2 - 3 players in a row with ease. He's just still getting used to the rules and hasn't had much game time. Ben Ryan did say before the tournament he was only going to bring Hayne on in the last 2 minutes of each game, so I guess Ryan's...

    [2016 Super Rugby] Highlanders vs. Crusaders (Round 12) 13/05/2016

    What is Justin talking about. You have to Wrap your arm around in the tackle, Wheeler clearly made no attempt to do that. Plus there was an early tackle before that Highlanders try the ref never saw, they were due for a yellow.

    [2015 RWC] Pool A: Wales vs. Fiji (01/10/2015)

    At first I thought Ma'afu was going overboard by giving the Welsh players **** after owning them at scrums. But then when you think about all the past games where he's been on the hiding end of scrums esp against Wales in 2010 its actually pretty funny haha
