Seeing that it’s rugby season in Fiji with the local 7s series as well as the Super Rugby Season happening right now, here is a list of 5 things that you should have when you’re going to watch it live.

Keep in mind that this list is totally up to you and would probably be something that you’re not into, and that’s ok. Different strokes for different folks! You can also add to the list if you feel like there are some things that were missed out.

In no particular order, let’s begin:


This is probably one of the most important things, especially if you have the chance to meet one of your rugby heroes. There is nothing worse than using the battery life on your phone throughout the whole day just to have it die when it’s time to meet the players! How will you immortalize the memory now? Trust me! Invest in a powerbank.


If you don’t grog, then this isn’t for you, but if you do grog, listen up!

We live in a time where grogging at sporting events is completely normal. Oh what a time to be alive! At most rugby events, there are even stalls there where people sell grog and even mix it ready for you, but if they aren’t any and you go to a rugby game where grogging is allowed, please for the love of all that is good and pure in this forsaken universe, don’t pretend like you’re all of a sudden allergic to grog and take your grog stuff!


This one is very important because you can use this in ANY weather. Whether it’s raining or sunny, an umbrella will definitely come in handy by keeping you either dry or safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays, especially if the seats you got are out in the open without a canopy of sorts.


I cannot stress this enough, but having wipes in your bag during a sporting event is such a life saver!

The atmosphere tends to make you sweat and leave your face feeling cakey, even if you don’t have any makeup on. If this is the case, then a good wipe down with some wet wipes should definitely make you feel fresh again.

As for the toilet paper, it goes without saying that public restrooms tend to run out of toilet paper quickly at big events, so always make sure you have a roll or two on hand. This also comes in handy when cleaning up little messes you tend to make while you’re watching the game.


Last but definitely not the least, MONEY! You need to have enough money to get to the venue and enough money to take you back home. Enough money to buy you some grub when you get hungry and enough money to give to your nieces and nephews in case you see them after a long time (this is definitely a possibility, especially in Fiji)

If you’re already looking forward to a game that’s coming up, make sure you put money aside for it!

I know times are hard and the struggle is real, so the best thing we can do is save up for these things before hand.


This list is what I think are must haves, so if you have your own, let us know in the comments.
