FRU ready to discuss sponsorship issue

THE Fiji Rugby Union is willing to discuss with the Nadroga Rugby Union issues relating to the sponsors for the Skipper Cup competition.

NRU earlier stated in the local media that it was willing to forfeit the funding from FRU for the provincial competition in order to protect their sponsorship.

NRU said it received more from the sponsors than it would from the FRU.

FRU, in a statement on Monday, said it was concerned about media reports in regards to the NRU opting to choose their sponsor over the Skipper Cup.

"NRU should have come to FRU first to give FRU a chance to respond before going directly to the media," the statement said.

"To date FRU has not received any formal communication from NRU in regards to this matter and consequently unfairly criticised in the media.

"The FRU is willing to discuss this with NRU to find an amicable solution for FRU and NRU. FRU is committed to finding the best possible solutions in assisting our provinces."

Meanwhile, the Skipper Cup is scheduled to kick-off with round two competitions this week after round one, which was supposed to be played last weekend, was postponed to a later date.

In the opening match, Tailevu will play Lautoka at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Friday.

Fixtures

Saturday: Naitasiri-Nadi (Ratu Cakobau Park), Vatukoula-Nadroga (Theodore Park), Suva-Northland (ANZ Stadium), Ovalau-Tavua (Nasau Park), Namosi-Macuata (Thomson Park).
