Flying Fijians

I totally agree with Anthony Sahai that our Flying Fijians have a brilliant chance of toppling the Wallabies (FT:30/05).

I, however, am hesitant that this can happen in the middle of the Australian winter down Melbourne! ARU surely has a great advantage and it's exactly why they chose this particular venue at this particular time of the year.

FRU obviously had no say and are just grateful to be given the chance to play one of the big guns.

If, on the other hand, this match was scheduled to be played in Suva at this particular time of the year, my uncertainty will surely make a 180 degree certainty that our Flying Fijians would topple the Wallabies hands down.

I'm surprised ARU never thought nor took up this great challenge on our home turf for it would only do them good.

I guess they are dead scared of a broken pride.

Go Fiji, go!
