‘We will always be a low value brown person’ – former Gloucester back on experiences with prejudice

first_imgTuesday Jun 9, 2020 ‘We will always be a low value brown person’ – former Gloucester back on experiences with prejudice Former Samoa and Gloucester back Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu has spoken about his experience with the unbelievable disparity in pay between Pacific Island players and those from other rugby countries.ADVERTISEMENTFuimaono-Sapolu was talking to the Pacific Rugby Players Welfare trust, an organisation led by Dan Leo who set out to improve the lives and careers of Pacific Rugby players.The New Zealand born back spent three seasons and won multiple awards at Gloucester, but has detailed how he was told that he would not be remunerated to the same level as other players.This came after contract negotiations with former Scotland player, Bryan Redpath.“I was told straight that there’s no way I could be played more than a Scottish player,” the skilful playmaker said. “I will never be what I achieve, I will always be the stereotype in their mind that I am not worthy of a Six Nations contract or a Tier 1 contract regardless of how I played.”“We will always be this low-value brown person. It’s cheap labour.”ADVERTISEMENTOne of Fuimaono-Sapolu’s classic Gloucester moments in 2011: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.
