Fiji fans left to ask the hard questions as Bainimarama and Tikoitoga go quiet on loss to Samoa

THREE ON ONE AND STILL NO GOOD: Fiji can't hold back Samoa.

Calls are being made for coach Samu Domoni (left) to be sacked after Fiji's nightmare loss to Samoa yesterday. But what of the chair of the regime run Fiji Rugby Union,  Mosese Tikoitoga?

Tikoitoga, who was narked about not getting a visa to travel with the team to New Zealand, has gone to ground and has been unavailable to media.

From all intents and purposes, the Flying Fijians got everything it needed to beat Samoa yesterday and to do well at the Rugby World Cup full stop.

According to the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, the World Cup campaign got the promised $3million dollars.

FBC says Fiji had five coaches and technical advisors: Samu Domoni, Shannon Fraser, Greg Mumm, Michael Foley and Mosese Rauluni with the added help of Reverend Joji Rinakama.

It also says overseas coaches were roped in and are getting $5,000 a week so the campaign didn't lack for know-how. 

The 30 players, including Leone Nakarawa who quit the military so he could get a visa to play, will be paid $30,000 each. They got $15,000 before they left and will get another $15,000 on their return home. 

The team, captained by Deacon Manu and included the experienced Nicky Little, was described as the best prepared side to leave Fiji shores but went down 27-7 to Samoa. It clearly lacked ideas, kicking ability, ball handling skills and from start the enthusiasm and battle skills to engage.

The national selector Mosese Taga is said to have admitted that the local players who proved themselves in the Farebrother and Digicel competitions SHOULD have been considered for the World Cup.

But it's the fans who are today asking the hard questions as rugby-mad Frank Bainimarama and Tikoitoga take cover. What went wrong with the Fiji campaign? Was the coaching panel up to speed? Did the selectors name the best team? Were the players paid enough? And is the malaise and beaten down attitude of the Flying Fijians typical of where the country is at?

Tikoitoga, Nakarawa, Keni Dakuidereteki and Digicel captain, DaleTonawai, in May.

It is just another example of the depressive state Fiji is in at the moment. No economy, no jobs, no hope - everyone leaving and going overseas. Thank you Frank & Co for doing your best to ruin the nation. You should be ashamed.

Sharon S said...

This issue needs to be urgently clarified! The Flying Fijians would have won this game by a large margin of at least 49 points if the bullies in the New Zealand government allowed the honorable Colonel Tikoitoga to join his team. The objective of this cruel conspiracy staged against Fiji is to show that everything, just about everything goes the dogs under the current government. Samoa's Prime Minister will no doubt see the winning of his team as a confirmation that he is right about the qualifications and intentions of 'the Admiral'.

Former rule player said...

No denying the 'malaise' you refer to is well and truly embedded in Fiji. I watched the game and I couldn't help thinking, the game our boys paralled so much of where we are at as a nation...lost, somewhat helpless and unsure of the rules.

I am ASK Therefore I lie said...

This defeat of the Flying Fijians was all the fault of the New Zealand Government.
If my bro Mosese Tikoitoga had been allowed into New Zealand he would have inspired our players and they would have played the game of their lives for our glorious Leader. As ir was due to the international conspiracy of the evil pro democracy movement Mo had to stay back.

In addition McCully wanted to make a point and ensure Samoa won. He made sure the umpire was on the side of Samoa and so Fiji was continuously penalized unfairly and Samoa were gifted penalties.

It is so unfair and another example of the evils carried out in the name of democracy.

Come on do not blame the men - blame the corruption that plagued the preparation. Who authorized the use of $3,000,000 that took the Fiji team to NZ. Wasn't it used to buy out the sovereignty of the FRU and to sack people. What about the rugby Lottery has it been honored? Ask the Army they engineered Fiji's dilemma.

Now work it out, if Fiji had won the game who would have claimed the credit for the win, the rugby people or the Government and the military hierarchy?

Fiji is demonstrating how not to run sports. It happened to Netball, it happened in the Pacific Games now it is plaguing Rugby.

Think people, Think and let it go. Fiji will lose again to Wales unless it is the "madigi" that Samoa go forward to the quarters. We have to straighten out Fiji first then we can win another international sport; especially where Bainimarama has placed his corrupt hands and expect the glory.

I'm not a Rugby fan, having grown up in Victoria where Australian Rules, ruled !
But I really feel sorry for these Fijian Rugby players, having to perform at their best despite the turmoil back in Fiji being at the forefront of their thoughts.

As for Frank and his cronies, Hitler had the same embarrassment when a black man won 4 gold Medals at the Summer Olympics in Berlin in 1936 :-
Hitler and his Arian Master Race were humiliated and made to look like fools.

In Frank's case, this is the same shit, just a different smell !

I was sitting at this mecca of rugby watching Fiji play Samoa,and I've never been so humiliated all my life.I was surrounded by a group of highly-spirited Samoans who jumped for joy everytime Manu Samoa put points on the board,at the same time taunting me and my flags and fancy fijian costumes that I had on.Maybe I should have gone to church since it was a Sunday afternoon.Anyway the All Blacks have got a new fan now.

The military cancer plaguing Fiji is continuing to spead. It has now engulfed Fiji Rugby. The military infested team was like the nation - leaderless, confused, dispirited and hopelessly farcical like a bollywood movie!!

With all due respect to other 'rugby' bloggers - somethings seems missing from all above comments? This Samoan team that nobody mentions is virtually the same A team outfit that recently beat the Wallabies fair and square on their home turf?
If The Flying Fijians are a reflection of Viti - what is this telling us about Manu Samoa?

Cause wasn't helped in that Viti's
self proclaimed tactical guru who lives in that big House rent free & gets paid for doing nothing
was unable to accompany the boys
because of some other stuff.

I applaud the boys for being able to front up and show the world what we Fijians can achieved if the situation is good. Considering that the people at home are being deprived through our religion,media,fair-working conditions,union membership,workers retirement funds,democratic election and many more.
It has gone from formidable team of 2007 to a very error ridden team and I will blame these bullies up the camp who tried to poke their shitty nose into every living things in Fiji, to be problem.Fijians are being brainwashed by a dictator who believed that he is the saviour of these so called power struggled that existed in the top level of the fiji government.
The people in Fiji will continue to suffer unless some gutsy people within have some balls and be rebellious.
Anyway irrespective of the Wales game result, I will always support the Fiji boys from my home in Australia because I was growing up playing rugby in Suva for 14 years.I am a proud Fijian and I hate the bullies smartass who are depriving my people of our freedom.I hope everyone will wake up seeing all these crooks getting richer as the day gone by.Three cheers for the boys in New Zealand.

Sharon S, what planet you from? Even if Tikoitoga was allowed to travel to NZ, it wouldn't matter as clearly the Fijians were no match for the Samoans. Get it into your thick head that the better team won. Fiji had no structure, decision making was poor, Nicky Little kept kicking the ball to the Samoans, so what do you expect? Sharon, stick to knitting as I think that's what you are food at. If anyone is to blame for the pathetic performance, it's the players themselves.

Samoan stalwart Seilala Mapusua has vowed his side will throw everything at the Springboks on Friday after winning the battle of the islands yesterday to keep their World Cup quarterfinals hopes alive.

After missing a couple of early chances, Samoa went back to their prudent ways to gain a crucial win over Fiji.

Sadly the Polynesia spectacular didn't eventuate in front of 60,327 at Eden Park, continuing a trend at this tournament that has seen the island flair strangely stagnant.

The Samoans were delighted to get the victory but admitted disappointment at not being able to get a bonus point which may prove crucial, either to make the playoffs or to nail third place in Pool D which would see automatic qualification for the next World Cup.

Mapusua said the intent had been to play more rugby against Fiji and felt that would be the only way Samoa could hope to beat the world champion Boks.

"I think we need to go all out and really move the ball around and try and get as far away from structure rugby as possible," he said of how Samoa could upset the Springboks.

"We know how strong South Africa are. They are very clinical at the set piece and also at building pressure. They have a goalkicker who will slot it from anywhere. We need to break it up a bit I think."

Samoa have exhibited a decent set piece themselves and used this to good effect against Fiji. The return of blindside flanker Taiasina Tuifua also gave them more potency at the breakdowns.

With plenty of ball and Tusi Pisi back from injury to be in the driving seat at No 10, they were able to operate from the right areas of the paddock to frustrate Fiji.

They built up a 15-0 lead through Pisi's boot before halfback Kahn Fotuali'i and impressive No 8 George Stowers finally crossed for second-half tries to seal the win.

But there was still a feeling that Samoa had only fired off one barrel against Fiji. They know they will need to unload both against the Boks.

"Going into this Fiji game we discussed at length how we haven't really fired a shot at this World Cup. There has been a lot of hype about this team since we beat Australia and I don't think we have played to our full potential. Hopefully we can do that this week,"said Mapusua, a former Highlanders midfield back who knows plenty about South African rugby.

Mapusua said the leadup win against Australia two months ago remained the benchmark for this side and they would need something similar to survive beyond Friday's fascinating final pool match.

"That's what we are working towards and I think we are slowly progressing over the last three games. We got the win here which is the main thing, so next week we can take it a step further. I think we have that big game in us."

He made no excuses for the pragmatic approach yesterday given what was at stake. After wingers Sailosi Tagicakibau and Alesana Tuilagi nailed tries in the first 10 minutes Samoa tightened their game plan.

"I think you are seeing what you might call the maturing of island teams. It wasn't quite the spectacle but it's a test match at the World Cup and everyone knew what was at stake. It was do or die for both teams.

"I think there was more emphasis on playing the percentages and building pressure and accumulating points, hoping it would open up later when Fiji tired."

That's eventually what happened and this surprisingly limited Fijian side helped Samoa with their high error rate.

Fiji go on to play Wales next Sunday and might have something to play for themselves, despite this loss. Their quarterfinal chances are gone but third place could yet be up for grabs.

It promises to be a hectic weekend.

"There's everything to play for. I think for us the quarterfinals come a week early and we will be throwing everything into it. Nothing is sewn up yet -- they did name this the pool of death and it's living up to that," Mapusua said.

If we can spend millions in corruption, millions in inflated roading contracts, we can damn well spend more on players for significant games.

There has to be a drive on reward by each game added for lost game and won game to have the bonus bumper payout.

National selector, Mosese Taga believes that more local players should have been given the chance to represent the Flying Fijians in the Rugby World Cup.

After rugby fans expressed their disappointment with the side's performance in the 27-7 loss to Samoa yesterday, Taga said that a few local players should have been considered.

He added that their role as selectors is to see the right players are selected and with only the best to be in the team with coach Samu Domoni Jnr having the final say.

There is an audio file attached to this story. Please login to listen.

Taga added that he feels local players like, Miti Nacagilevu, Emosi Vucago, Nikola Matawalu and Joeli Lutumailagi could have been considered but the coaching staff felt they have the players for the RWC.

Fiji lacked mental preparation for Cup games
Monday, September 26, 2011

Taken from / By: www.irb.com

Questions are being raised about the Flying Fijians mental preparedness for the Rugby World Cup.

Counsellor Selina Kuruleca says the team showed no desire to win in the game against Samoa yesterday.

"Players looked like they were not in the game. Mentally some looked switched off. The team looked sloppy. I'm curious as to what their preparations were before going into the World Cup."

Kuruleca says Fiji showed it has the physical strength to play 80 minute rugby, however the same cannot be said for the mental state of the players.

Kuruleca adds the mental aspect needs to be built up 6 months before the tournament itself and not leading into individual games.

The so-called 'Warriors" and 'Flying Fijians" simply LOST BIG TIME for the simple reason that the country is SO dis-jointed, lacks cohesiveness, lacks the unity, lacks the will, lacks trust, lacks what-have you!!
It is a TRUE reflection of happenings back here at home. How can they win, I ask if the unity is not there, or rather here at home.

It is very sad and indeed unprofessional for coach Domoni to now distance himself from the team after the THRASHING in FRU's history!!
I liken the coach [Domoni] to a an Army General, who reads and leads the battle from the rear, who orders reinforcements/support in a timely manner. A leader who reads the battle from the enemy's point of view, a leader who ensures that he has the intelligence and information about the enemy BEFORE issuing his 'Battle Orders' from the PLAN that he has drawn up and is the basis of his 'Orders".
Should, for any reason that the battle is lost, then No One, I repeat No One is held responsible but the General. Period. To shift the blame, like Domoni is now doing is unacceptable and will not be condoned by us, the supporters. Domoni, like the boys must take possession of the loss. You cannot on the flip side of the coin take glory for any wins can you??

Everything associated with this Regime will be at a loss. 7s Rugby, Netball, Soccer, Athletics and Rugby. Its liken to a child who comes from a broken home..... surely he/she will encounter problems. This chaotic nation has deep deep shit to deal with. The only thing for this regime is to step aside to allow for good citizens of Fiji's civil Society to prepare for elections. If we dont do this everything associated with this Regime will be BAD NEWS.

Mosese Taga please dont speak now because 1] thats what you should done before - voice your concern.2] You were part of the World cup team that never won any game in the pool game. Galu mada ga bro.

Tikoitoga and Bainimarama - you must now know that everything associated with your touch is poisonous.You know why? Get it into your thick heads that the only solution to our problems is remove the actual wrong caused by YOU people in the military. You wanted to make a right with a wrong. You laid the foundation of chaos from the begining. The people of this nation are then being suppressed and oppressed and caged in a box that only knows culture of silence.So live with what you sow. The whole of Fiji are now reaping the fruits of what this Regime had sown.Their time will come.

Fiji Village

The Fiji Rugby Union board will meet after the Fiji 15's rugby team's last pool match against Wales this Sunday to decide on the future of Fiji rugby.

Questions continue to be raised about Fiji's embarrassing performance against Manu Samoa yesterday which also confirmed that Fiji has no chance to qualify for the 2011 Rugby World Cup quarter finals.

Fijivillage contacted FRU Chairman, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga and asked what steps the FRU will take now.

He said they will make the decision after the Wales game.

Colonel Tikoitoga also said they will wait for the reports of the Manager and the Coach.

On a talkback show on our sister station, Viti FM last night, many rugby fans called for the coach, Samu Domoni Junior to be replaced.

Domoni was appointed in 2009 and contracted until the World Cup.

He has now shown an intention to continue coaching Fiji.

Colonel Tikoitoga said he cannot say anything on Domoni's contract.

Domoni was assisted by Greg Mumm, Shannon Fraser, new Waratahs coach, Michael Foley and 2007 RWC captain, Mosese Rauluni.

It's sad that Fiji didn't win a game except against the lowly Namibia.
I agree with "Anonymous 3:37". You can imagine standing there and singing our national anthem with passion and then you suddenly come to that verse "A land of freedom, hope and glory..." and your Conscience saying to you, "You know that's bullshit. Your land has No Freedom, No Hope, No glory" and today on this rugby field you will have No freedom , No hope and No glory"
And guess what, you drop the ball, you kick inappropriately, you tackle ineffectively etc etc. Duhhhh!
No matter how we look at it, "the Conscience" is important.
I remember one man who was so disturbed by his conscience he couldn't play on a Sunday.
His name was Michael Jones.In fact the All Blacks and NZ asked the IRB to reschedule one of its World Cup games ( from a Sunday)and the millions of dollars of TV rights just to accomodate this man.
Talk about "moving mountains"!
That's because NZ recognised the power of the conscience.
So, yes we can pay our players millions of dollars, give them the best coaches in the world but at the end of the day, the conscience will speak and the body will obey.

Fiji will never win anything as long as this Illegal Regime is in power!

We should have more local talent in the team to show the fire and the heart of the game, not the overseas players who only worry about their contracts while playing ie not to get hurt or contracts may be cancelled. The boys while here in the World Cup needs to be released daily to mix with fans visit schools, hospitals, go for dinner with families, and respect the invitations of the various organised functions by the fijian communities here in New Zealand within reason I am saying. All other teams do that but not the FIJI Team, what they do is LOCK THEMSELVES away from the public and fans who wants to get a glimps of them. The Samoan boys had a free afternoon on Saturday the day before they met FIJI, they came to the BULA festival in Penrose Auckland organised by the Fijian World Cup committee and it was full of fijians waiting for the FIJI team but they never turned up. Only the boys who were not playing at all turned up. I was there waiting. Before the Wales game can FRU please release our boys from a CULTIC SITUATION(LOCKED UP IN A HOTEL) and let them relax a bit. Maybe it might change the result this Sunday. What I am sharing above are the frustrations from the sideline. Despite the loss we are still behind you so DO IT against WALES for our sake and the sake of our PACIFIC BROTHERS SAMOA. Kenneth Zinck

Did we make the correct choice by securing the services of those NSW Waratahs coaching team to assist our Flying Fijians? Maybe NOT!

Alrite! Lets forget about this 2011World Cup and move on.

For many years the Crusaders Team of NZ was and is probably the most consistent Super Rugby team in the World and the FRU in my opinion must develop a network or partnership with them to assist Fiji in the next world cup 2015.

If the ABs lift the Cup this year then FRU must seriously secure their technical expertise. Sa dri yani!! Moce Viti!

at the end of the day , the players play the game not the coach or any of the politicians.. Fact being fact Fiji were outplayed from the start. They could not hold the ball or retain possession. And when they did hold possession they made a meal of it. Fiji just dont do the basics right and against better opposition it just shows... Fiji spilt the ball like it was a bar of soap...
No possession / ball no points simple as that.. !

Samu... boy, biuti iratou mada na unused players ni viti me ra qito ena macawa qo. ke sega, ena qai vakalekaleka taka na kemu balavu qori edua na motobitu ni naivucini.

vakaukauwa tale mada raboys... dou yadua rawa mada na jibi qai caka na cibi vei Welesi.

All this talk about the boys getting paid is a load of bull..the boys only got $3000.00 each and that was from the ex-reps funding...$15,000.00 is all lies...and so is the $30,000.00.... oratou Madaga na 1/4finalists ni 2007 are still waiting for their $30,000.00.

E sa yawa o coach Domoni with his former job as a bouncer in a nightclub and the S..L..A..NG!!
I always have a BIG laugh when people want to be by slanging!!
Be normal, be natural and be yourself! Levu na gauna e dau cala tu mada ga na nomuni verbs, nouns adjectives and the tense. O iko na kai Viti, sa rauta mada na slang tiko!!

Domoni was of of his depth? Bst he go back to WA & sweat his ar-- out.He is not acoach , not a motivator, nor can re read, write or talk on the game in DEPTH! He has no understanding of Fijian minds when it comes to getting the best out of them-all in all -he followed the advise of the Aussies assistant coaches-Are we suprised??It was his brillant idea to ban the CIBI-baku! Tara wi Tara da!
