On the eve of the big game, when the Fijian Drua take on the might of the Chiefs at Churchill Park in Lautoka, the hype is building up.

In fact you can sense it in the air.

Come to think of it, we have another feast of sports action this weekend.

Soccer fans have the Fiji FACT to look forward to. Then there’s the 7s competition in London.

But back on the homefront, the big one on the front page of The Fiji Times’ edition for Friday, May 27 is about comments made by National Federation Party president Pio Tikoduadua.

He has a bone to pick with the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He talks about political parties, and about the electoral laws, focusing on the Financial Management Act.

NEWLY appointed Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong has announced a pathway for permanent residency (PR) for 3000 Pacific islanders and that seasonal workers would be allowed to bring their families.

You can read this report in Friday’s edition!
