Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
Win or Lose, We're Still Kings
Hong Kong, here we come. Let’s forget about Adelaide and move on. Fiji Rugby House and the Sevens team will know how we feel. It's only human that a time will come when we will fail, blame someone, bicker and find fault. It’s pretty hard to say, “Oops, sorry people, it’s my fault.” Now that the feelings of fans have been aired let’s get together once again, lets bind and move on.
Talk around the kava bowl in Waiyavi was that there was something bad going on in the Sevens contingent. I suppose we don’t want to hear about it now. Let’s just move on. Because if we lift the cup in Hong Kong naturally we will all be singing praises – together that is. All the losses will be forgotten. So Kong Po or happy Valley will be a happy hunting ground for us. But if we do lose, well it's back to the drawing board, back to pointing fingers, back to finding fault, back to ducking the issue, and back to square one.
We are rated the best Sevens team in the world. We have been called kings of Sevens. Kings lose battles in war, yet they remain kings. This is the title they have, were born with, or which may have been given to them, but they remain kings.
Our boys remain kings in our hearts, even though we say that they could pull up their proverbial socks.
But come game time every rugby-loving person will have their fingers crossed that we will do better. So, go for it boys. Fiji is waiting. Make us proud. Bur first iron out the kinks in your armoury, make peace with the coach and management, and then go out and do your best.
