"Disgraced rugby manager fined 100 pigs"
The manager’s village has ruled on the mess involving staff and management of Manu Samoa who have been accused of improprieties during the team’s World Cup stint.
Apparently, the fine is not because the team lost but because of the manager’s irresponsible behavior. It would have been an unfair fine if it was for the former. This again goes to prove the Samoans' intransigence with respect to punishment for someone who brings disgrace to the family or village. Sometimes it becomes an overkill (pun intended), as in this case, as far as I'm concerned.
