I had the priviledge to be at Teufaiva to watch the last IT v Manu Samoa match on 19th August. I cannot hold my tears when I saw the men in red putting their hands on the seal and their heart when the 'Otua Mafimafi was played. These fine young men showed their love for their king and country and played their hearts out in the true spirit of the game. Unfortunately they did not produce the results that every Tongan expected but they demonstrated what it takes to restore the pride of Tongan rugby, mateaki and 'ofa fonua.
