The Manu Samoa had their first RWC game today against Namibia. I slept all of 3 hours last night and am still awake almost 24 hours later. I just couldn't settle last night, butterflies in my stomach, I felt so nauseous at one point I thought I'd pass out!
It didn't help that the Go The Manu video was posted at bedtime and it was truly inspiring, of course it made me cry like the sookie that I am. I also couldn't help myself and watched it almost a dozen times :) I loved how the creators fit the pictures to specific lyrics of the song. I have a whole lot to say about the game but for now here's the video of Samoans from all over the world uniting to send a message to our Manu Samoa.
We're in there, somewhere :)
Now it's another 4 sleeps wait for Samoa vs Wales. This ones a toughie, so we need to step up, reduce the ball handling errors, the backs need to watch their passes and keep an eye on that ball because Wales, Fiji and South Africa aren't going to show any mercy and they will punish us for the tiniest mistakes.
Go The Manu!
