As a child growing up in PNG I was pretty much brought up around the awesome sport of Rugby League.
Our very our team appropriately named the Fiji Bati (remember in an earlier post I explain the word “Bati” to you) have been absolutely awesome in this tournament and play their last pool game this Saturday against England.
The team is made up of many Fijian boys that are playing in the NRL set in Australia and have gotten together to reconnect with their Fiji bloodline and play for country..truly inspiring considering many are born and bred in Australia..and are only reconnecting with their Fijian heritage for the first time now.
Fiji with flags flying high, will once again stand still for 80mns to scream, laugh, cry and possibly want to throw things at the TV (as in my case..often) when the boys get on the field this weekend.

Good luck Fiji Bati!!
