Whaat..

I just realised that  i haven’t been updating my blog. My last post was in January! Not much has happened. Fiji just lost in the Hong Sevens. 😦 Better luck next time boys.

Fiji’s PM Baininmarama just launched his new party name- Fiji First. Now he embarks on getting his 5000 signatures in order to qualify as an official political party. It’s surprising the amount of support he has among the young people. We received a paper for signatures and i passed it on to some guys working next door to us.

The papers were snapped up in a heartbeat as people rushed to sign their support. These are mostly supporters  in their early and late twenties. I haven’t decided yet on who to vote. I will keep it to myself until the day of elections which kicks off on September 17. I have to read through each party’s policies then make my decision.

Its going to be very interesting times ahead.Most of Fiji’s young population will be voting for the first time!

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.
