Maciu Malo
Wednesday, February 19, 2014

FORMER Flying Fijians skipper and FRU board member Mosese Taga will continue to lead the union's games committee.

In a statement yesterday, union acting CEO and board director Dr Berlin Kafoa said the board confirmed that Taga was still the head of the games/HPU sub-committee.

He said the board took note of the motion tabled by Suva at the Special General Meeting in Nadi as mentioned by chairman Filimoni Waqabaca.

"As approved by the games subcommittee, the FRU hopes to complete all technical and skills updates before the Vodafone Cup 2014 begins so that the skills learnt can be applied during the various competitions," said Kafoa.

He also confirmed the arrival of two rugby specialists to assist unions in the country

"Scrum coach Alan Muir and kicking coach Andre Bell, both from New Zealand, are in the country and will be travelling around to assist unions," Kafoa said.

"They will be accompanied by an FRU team consisting of administration, referee, high performance and development officials who will conduct workshops and work closely with the unions to strengthen provincial rugby in Fiji."
