With a swim in the hotel pool and a game of touch as our routine leading up to the game against Marist Brothers High School, we approached the game that was going to be played in 27 degree heat, relaxed and chilled. After a two hour bus trip we were all ready and rearing to go, but as we arrived and saw the opposition, the nerves kicked in and the warm up lacked a bit of enthusiasm.
By now you will have been in Fiji for a day and no doubt still acclimatising.
I'm sorry that I couldn't see you off at the airport as I was struck down with the dreaded man-flu.
Just wanted to wish you all the very best of luck but most of all I sincerely hope that you all enjoy this amazing trip and take in all the culture and sights that Fiji has to offer.
No doubt there will be training and tough games ahead. Do yourselves and the school proud.
President of the Rugby PSG.
To keep families updated on the Fiji Rugby tour we have created a blog on MyMarcellin. Each day we will provide a description of what we did along with a couple of pictures.
Parents can log in and leave a message for the boys. I know everyone would enjoy hearing from you. Just be aware your reply will go to all participants of the blog.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday evening at 7.45pm at the airport, International Departures.
