Bula Boys win battle Our Bula Boys battled it out against New Caledonia and came out on top with a 3-0 win. Since the Fiji vs Solomons clash last year, which ended in a draw,...

Hate has no place I salute The Fiji Times for a brilliant reminder on yesterday’s front page — “Hate has no place”. The editorial was apt as well. Only if people could understand this message, surely our world would be a better place to live in. The massacre in Christchurch was least expected and has...

Sevens support It’s pleasing to note that Russia 7s coach and our own Waisale Serevi is confident that Fiji can win the 2018-19 World Rugby Sevens Series (WRSS) title. Serevi, who was the first coach/player to guide Fiji to the 2005-06 WRSS and 1997 RWC 7s titles, has Fiji at heart and the saying “you...

Christchurch massacre As the Pacific stood in unity, my mind and thoughts went to the families of those who lost their lives in the Lynnwood mosque massacre. Sadly, defenceless women, men and children lost their lives. Reading stories via The Sunday Times melted hearts as I felt for those who lost their lives. My family’s...

Regular white man THE Australian Breton Tarrant, the perpetrator of the Muslim massacre in Christchurch, claims he is just a “regular white man”. That’s so scary. How many more of the Breton Tarrant variety are out there in our midst? RAJEND NAIDU, Sydney, Australia Working hours I HAD wished the CEO of this foods company...

Fiji rugby direction With having most of the under 20 making headlines in the past shows good sign that Fiji rugby is moving in the right direction. Even without some provincial stars, the Warriors team seems to be on course. After thrashing Tonga and Japan, who have won a game each, the Warriors against Samoa...

Diver in whale It was interesting to read and watch the video of a South African diver who was recently swallowed and spat out by a huge whale on the east coast of South Africa. He said that he did not have a whale of a time. It was scary for both man and mammal....

Tax rules I understand Fiji was given a year to change tax rules. I believe European Union governments have declared that there has been no response so far. Fiji has been added to a blacklist of tax havens. I presume a different colourful picture will be painted by local sources. Mohammed Imraz Janif Natabua, Lautoka

Referees’ decisions In the recently concluded HSBC 7s rugby tournaments in Hamilton, Sydney, Las Vegas and Vancouver, I noted with some personal concern and sadness, some referees’ decisions, rightly or wrongly, seemed to go very expeditiously against our own Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team. I will, however, allow to be stood corrected, with grace, dignity...

Facebook issue Yesterday morning I logged on to Facebook and it was down. My world nearly ended! Well I just went and did something else. I wonder if some people were devastated that they couldn’t log on to FB. I am always on FB but I also read books and have a backyard garden where...

Road upgrade After about two years of campaigning via your columns for a proper upgrade to the Khalsa Rd I am happy to report that the grading and laying of new tarseal is now almost complete between Princes Rd and Kanace Rd. It is now a pleasure to drive on this stretch without bits falling...

Fijian citizenship The revelation that 196 foreign nationals were granted Fijian citizenship over a period of six months, between January and July 2016, is interesting (FT:14/03). That would be an average of approximately 380 people per year. In monetary terms that would be approximately $2 million in Immigration Department revenue. Let’s hope money is not...
