An inspiration for all Thank you The Fiji Times for highlighting the stories of our 7s players. In particular, I refer to Tuesday’s headline on Josua Tuisova. The piece highlights that our rugby hero dropped out of school after class 7. He joined his father cutting cane in Ba as a young adult. He later...

French brilliance and magic THE planet’s ultimate game, the final of the 21st World Cup soccer, was amazing as France stunned Croatia to win after the sweet victory at home 20 years ago.

Unstoppable Suva The national sevens side has now officially started the final countdown for the assault on the Rugby World Cup Sevens title.

Audit in, audit out PARLIAMENT has come to an end it’s been four years and soon we will go to the polls. Or to put in in a fancy way parliament has ended sine die. There are 50 people in that party. How many of them have spoken again after their maiden speech? We have...

A new winner With the FIFA World Cup soccer ending this Monday, a lot would be at stake, especially for Croatian football as they would be making their first finals. I believe the Croatians would be out there to write their piece of history. Croatia is a relatively small country with a population of about...

World Cup showdown I loved reading the correspondence from two of our renowned writers Shad and Shalwyn. Just like letters from Narayan, Wise, Dan, Sukha, Shah and Allen, I always look forward to letters sent from Mukta Ben and the anaconda town. Shalwyn had his own piece of Mathematics puzzle regarding number 7 and has...

Thai cave incident So far four boys have been rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand, where they had been trapped for two weeks with eight other boys and their coach.

An amazing journey BRAVO to Ana and The Fiji Times for sharing an inspirational and fascinating story (FT07/08) titled “An amazing journey” about an epitome of two lovers — Aisake, who is 92 years old and Vilisi, who is 88. I loved this line, “Every day I can kiss her more than 10 times and...

RWC 7s target YESTERDAY’S front page aroused a lot of interest for two reasons. The first was the excitement within fans as our 7s boys hit Utah. Even superstar and Bollywood king and betaaj badshaa Salman Khan could not resist the opportunity to take pictures with 7s fans holding our national flag. That’s the power...

Raka 7s partnership The organisers of the 2018 Raka 7s have promised a 7s fiesta bigger and better than last year. With the rugby brains in our former 7s manager Rob Kauvesi and now that the organisers have teamed up with the number one The Fiji Times, I can see that dream turning into reality....

Power outage I was at a supermarket in Lautoka when the power went off. The cashiers’ cash registers went off and people stood in line for about an hour. Some people just left their shopping carts and went away. I went outside and stood at the traffic lights where the Vidilo and Naviti streets cross...

Top class rugby The Gallagher Chiefs and Pulse Energy Highlanders showdown lived up to expectations although I was slightly disappointed by the lack of fighting character displayed by the home side that allowed the visitors to score six tries and take a commanding 42-0 lead. Had the second half spirit shown earlier, the result would...

Call for help line I AGREE with Mr Dan Urai’s suggestion on opening up a “call line” but not for as stated “complaints” but for general enquires, assistance and information, for if you open a call line for complaints, well! that’s all you get — complaints. NIGEL FIU Lautoka Soccer World Cup SUKHA Singh should...

Mega exciting stage at soccer World Cup The 2018 FIFA World Cup has only become mega exciting after South Korea created history by defeating super power Germany.
