    A great big hand for both sides, for producing probably one of the finest matches in RWC history. After a great game like that, actually a pity that there must be a winner and a loser. But well done to Fiji, and an excellently planned campaign it was indeed. You guys are worthy quarter-finalists. With the game on the line, you guys just kept on going for it until the end. **** safety first, just keep with what works for you guys- and that is playing an incredibly fast and skillful game. To see your 7 sprint upfield like a back, straight through the middle of a ruck, and to see the way Delasau steps, just epitomises what Fijian rugby is all about.

    I can just imagine how gutted the Welsh must be. Well done for keeping the spirit and style of play alive that won Wales a triple crown and six nations a couple of seasons ago. Kudos to Shane Williams also, for an absolutely amazing, mesmerising run. You guys might have lost out this time, but there`s just too much passion in Welsh rugby for you guys to stay down for too long.

  3. im just thinking what this game will do...i know the fijians pride themselves in the 7s arena because thats where they succeed..but now with this in there good books ya gotta think that this will boost the confidence for alotta sevens players to push for a 15s jerseys

    and that means the next generations of rauluni's,caucaus,sivivatus,rokocoko's will be popping up in fiji from here on out...same with tonga aswell!

    GO ISLANDERS!

    Will they though. Unless the Pacific Island teams are in a strong competitive tournament, I can't see many of the next wonder kids staying at they're country of birth with NZ domestic & International structure.

    I do hope that these upcoming players do stay with they're birth countries, it would do wonders for World rugby to see more teams really competing at the top level.

    As of mid-day today, I have watched the replay of the game 8 times...and am still loving it. The drama is unfolding, the cheering is rolling and the Kava keeps flowing.

    Before the tournament started, I was one of the biggest critic of Delasau & Nicky Little inclusion in the team.....after the game, I have taken back every bad things I have called them. They were heroes in that game and congratulations to them.

    And to whoever posted about Fiji being dirty and the Ref being lenient towards us (and not handing out more yellow cards)... please STFU.

    If anyone deserved to be binned, it was the lazy, dirty Welsh who kept killing the ball in the rucks. Martyn Williams was lucky not to be binned in when he deliberately blocked the ball in the 74th minute of the game...so was Chris Horsman for blatantly joining the ruck from the side..geez, he might as well pull on a Fiji jersey.

    Our defence was brutal, it was 'ard, it was legal and that's how we do it....

    Anyway that's water under the bridge now. You should be happy that at least Jenkins has been told to FO. This should be a turning point for both Welsh & Fiji Rugby.

    Now I'm heading home soon to watch the game for the 9th time now.

    Is that honestly any different than Scottish or Welsh players going across the fictitious border to play for England? I mean, England has a lot more money than either of those places.
     
  9. yes it is...mainly cause we dont have a corrupt history with eac other as polynesians

    I was very upset with te result and that's behind us now. But this is one sentence i couldn't just take on the chin:

    Lol. Reall? Legal? I can't believe there was only 1 yellow card. I saw plenty of filthy play on Fiji's behalf. High tackles and late challenges (Popham was victim to a lot of these) and Peel caugh a nice shoulder to the chest well after he let the ball go.
    No, Fiji deserved the game. Wales played poorly in far too many patches and Fiji took what was in front of them and deservedly so - but to concede they did it legally throughout the game? Hell no.

    Bulls***. Look at your football team. Giggs always moans that he should've played for England. Hargreaves is 100% Canadian (born there, lived there, raised there) and yet for some reason thinks he's a f-ing Englishman.



    As far as rugby, here are actual stats instead of whining.

    [/b][/quote] Mate, Chiro isn't Welsh, he's from the southern hemisphere, somewhere.

    As for Giggs, he never moaned about he should of played for England. England would of like him to play for England, but he played for Wales.

    Also Owen Hargreaves actually played for Wales as a youngster, though I can't remember what age though.

    Brilliant, the southern hemisphere boys are turning on each other now.
    At least we don't have to listen to their bitching any more.
