Rugby in the wider Pacific is a far cry from that of the western world's game, simple examples of difference are money or more to the point lack of it. The beauty of the Island game is that dollars are far from their mind of our players as each night the game comes to life on most blades of grass across the Islands that make up the Pacific. This Island Style game is based on smiles, passion, speed and an abundance of raw talent. This pure rugby is natural, unplanned and attacking, all things that the international game is lacking and striving to deliver. This is also why exporting Pacific Players is a massive industry and a way for European and Japanese teams to guarantee more tries.
This beautiful game of rugby is a rare thing that Pacific people can compete with big countries in the world players can come from a small village and soon be competing in the international arena with 50,000 people watching them. The new environment can be very challenging as it is light years away from the normal Island Village lifestyle. But as defenders soon find out the Pacific is the breading ground for attacking players in the modern game and as we see they are hard enough to touch net alone tackle.
