Unique talents

It is always heartbreaking to watch our boys lose to teams we once used to beat convincingly. Teams such as Canada, Scotland and America to name a few.

The game of sevens rugby has truly evolved and these once mediocre teams have stepped up and are now a force to be reckoned with.

I believe our boys are unique and they have God-given talents and skills that only a few other teams have in their arsenal.

The reality is that if these talents and skills are not developed and nurtured correctly, than it is in vain. We need the boys to be psyched up before each game and to be mentored properly and given the right diet to be able to perform well and with efficiency.

I believe it is also the right time for some of the old boys to step aside and give the younger ones a chance to prove their worth.

We have so much talent in our island nation and it is sad that some of these boys who sacrifice a lot of their time and effort are not being given the chance to represent our country in the abbreviated code.

Next season is still a way off and this would be the best time for us to regroup, analyse and choose wisely who will represent us in the future.
