I am not sure that I could place Fiji on a map of the world. I know sweet FA about the Country. But that does not really matter. Fiji is playing England at rugby tonight.

And thus like folks across Wales, Scotland and God’s chosen country of Ireland for tonight “I am a Fijian”. There are only two teams I support in this World Cup. Naturally my first team is Ireland. And my second? Whoever is playing the Old Enemy. Call it childish if you wish but it is in the blood. And across the Celtic lands nearly everyone feels the same way.

That I have to endure this match while in England is not pleasant. I suspect I shall watch at home since I fear an English win, but should Fiji be ahead with just a few minutes to go I shall rush up to the Conservative Club to relish the final moments with Englishmen in pain. That would be a double delight.
