FRU still to name CEO

THE Fiji Rugby Union has prolonged the naming of its new chief executive officer.

In a statement, FRU board chairman Filimoni Waqabaca said "given the current situation with IRB, the FRU will continue the current arrangement whereby the chairman and the board oversees the operations of FRU.

"The board will address the issue of the CEO when the board has completed all the recommendations of the IRB review and audit reports.

"This approach is also taken as a cost saving measure for FRU given the current financial situation of FRU.

"When all the work is completed, the FRU board aims to give back to this rugby nation a financially viable institution that determines and controls its own destiny."

FRU board member Doctor Berlin Kafoa is the acting CEO.

He has been serving on the post since the termination of former CEO Manasa Baravilala's contract in September last year.

IRB earlier this week suspended all direct funding support to the union with immediate effect.

In a statement released on January 11, the IRB said the suspension would last until FRU adopts key financial reporting, administration and governance reforms

"The decision was reluctantly made after the union failed to implement recommended measures to provide assurances to the IRB that it was appropriately moving to address significant concerns regarding the administration and governance of the union," the statement said.

Meanwhile, the FRU also deferred the press conference to clarify on the sponsorship.
