Tough lessons

Tomasi Boginiso, Nepani, Nasinu | Monday, January 29, 2018
Statistically Fiji had no ball at all against USA both the halves. What is the coach's approach in this scenario? Fiji has lost a few important matches in the past with this very similar pattern of game.

We have not been getting the ball back at the restart like day one and two games, we have not been pushing the USA ruck in order to get the ball back and all Fijian players seem to play their own every time they handle the ball and only release the ball when in trouble.

USA started walking over Fiji because there were hardly any hard-hitting tackles to make the game more intense. After beating NZ in everyone's mind we will win this tournament, but to no avail.

Another factor is the way the coach has been positioning players, he firstly should have an A team to start every game and get substitutes when required. Gareth has been putting everyone everywhere and we, the supporters, are always getting mixed up on who is playing what at certain moments in the game.

I believe we should be looking for a new coach and Gareth will not last long if he carries on this way.
