National rugby coach Ilivasi Tabua sacked

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Update: 2:54PM The Fiji Rugby Union has terminated the contract of National rugby head coach Ilivasi Tabua.

In a statement, the FRU chairman Bill Gavoka confirmed the termination and said it was linked to an off-field incident during the Pacific Nations Cup.

The National Coach is a role model to his players, fellow coaches and to the many young rugby followers around the country, Gavoka said.

Tabua joined the FRU as the High Performance Unit Academy Coach in September 2006 before taking over as the National Head Coach from Wayne Pivac in January 2007.

He coached the Flying Fijians to the 2007 Pacific Nations Cup and to the quarter finals of the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
