FIJI Rugby Union acting CEO Doctor Berlin Kafoa will meet the International Rugby Board officials this week to discuss ways to foster their relationship.

IRB suspended its financial support to FRU in January following the IRB Major Union review.

Dr Kafoa said the union was officially engaged with them and working on ways to restore relationship with the IRB.

"Yes we have already officially engaged with them and now we are awaiting their response so we are meeting with them just to see the initial support for international 7s at the end of the year and see what's the way forward for us."

Dr Kafoa also confirmed meeting with the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union to discuss a memorandum of understanding between the two unions.

He said one of the areas they would like to discuss was the availability of the Hong Kong 7s tickets to their fans.
