    I had similar thoughts. But on reflection, Fiji is a fast rising power in world rugby. Player power that is, not currently money and business power.
    So this is the first chance to hold onto their best young players that end up playing overseas and even for other countries or for NRL clubs.
    GRR needs them as much as they need us.

    Not at the expense of getting things done, it doesn't. One first impression, that's all. It can't afford to be of a shambles.

    From what I can find 'Tui' means 'King'. So the Fijian Kings.

    Will be interesting to see how they contract their players and whether they spread their home games out.
