Following onto my previous post about Fiji rugby (or lack thereof) on the web, there is an exciting new Fiji blog on the block; heading into its second week of operation: The Fiji Rugby Blog. One notable feature of this blog is that roughly half of the posts to date are in Fijian.

I found the two thoughtful post-mortems of the Flying Fijians' recent lacklustre performances against the Junior All Blacks and the Wallabies to be great reads. Here is a sample:

Australia’s defence was so tight; the Fiji team has no way of breaking or unlocking them with aimless running; unless Fiji uses their creative juices to study those defences; use some diversion to confuse them and attack them when they are bristling with confidence; until we come up with these, Fiji still has a long way to go.

Let's hope that this is the beginning of Fiji's favourite game gaining a foothold online!
