Don’t go FRU on me

So apparently there’s a slang coined by a radio station for when you’re broke and don’t have any money. It goes like: – “I’m so FRU, can you loan me some money?” or “Please don’t go FRU on me…”

By the way FRU stands for Fiji Rugby Union – a body that looks after Fiji Rugby, and is constantly cash strapped with its operations. Once again they’ve messed up a $3m grant from IRB to help with the development of Fiji rugby. Way to go FRU….Now we see whether Ben Ryan stays on for the long run. Such a shame…

So¬† Fiji lost out to England at the IRB Gold Coast Rugby 7s Quarterfinals. At least we won the Plate. But admit it, deep down inside every Fijian rugby fan is that feeling of ‘Why’…. But lets face it, Ben Ryan is here to stay, and lets rally him forward.

It’s the start of the 2013/14 IRB 7s tourneys and I’m looking forward to what he has to offer for Fiji rugby 7s. The Dubai 7s kicks off November 29-30, 2013. Hopefully Fiji does better next time.

Winner of the 2013 Gold Coast Sevens – NZ who beat surprising finalist Australia 40-19. Right now NZ leads the table with 22 points.
