Fiji rugby isn’t Fiji Rugby without it’s flaws, a strong high tackle here, a speedy forward pass there…
As much as rugby is a game for gentlemen, with Fijians playing it will always have its little pinch of roughness as seasoning in their matches.

Fijian players are well known for diving across the tryline
The beauty about Fijians playing rugby is that whether they win or lose, they still remain proud for representing their country. With names of loved ones scribbled on their wrists or memory verses such as Philippians 4:13, Fijians and people will always be two words that blend well together.
With players who live and bleed rugby, the Fiji team is one you never want to mess with. They play the game like changing a tshirt, so effortless and proud that even when defeated they hold their heads up and congratulate their opponents.
Am I exaggerating? Never!
It is said that the greater the gifts, the heavier the responsibility! These Fijians don’t just play the sport, they love it. With fans and families just as crazy in love with the sport as they are, they know that the weight of winning is always heavy on their shoulders.
However, as thrilling and memorable winning is, a sport will always be a sport; where one will win and the other gets to try harder next time.Embed from Getty Images
So now, while the whole world temporarily shuts down due to a pandemic, Fijians will sit back and wait for the next time they’ll shout out “toso Viti toso!” But for now, as Ben Ryan says its “veilomani”.
