Fiji Out

Fiji has no one but themselves to blame, especially McKee.

It is safe to say that Fiji is now out of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

A lousy set of line up fiel in by Coach John McKee has shredded all dreams of Fijians getting to life the Webb Ellis Cup this year in Japan.

Uruguay reigned over Fiji and replied with back to back tries until the end.

Nikola Matawalu’s 81st minute try was nowhere close to giving Fiji a miracle win.

Fiji underestimated the Uruaguay side as Uruguay’s stamped their first World Cup win in 16 years, and only their third ever. Given the others were against Georgia in 2003 and Spain in 1999, this must rate as the greatest game they’ve ever played.

Fiji has no one but themselves to blame, especially McKee.

Fiji is now all but out of the World Cup after two defeats in five days. Only two teams in the tournament’s history have ever made it through to the quarter-finals after losing two pool matches. They were abject, tired, sloppy, and complacent. They made almost as many handling errors as they managed to score points.
