THE Fiji National Rugby League hopes to send the best four coaches in the country for overseas attachments.
The Vodafone Cup competition kicks off today at the Ra Sports Ground in Rakiraki and the four teams that reach the semi-finals of the Top 8 at the end of the competition may become part of history.
FNRL operations manager Joeli Savou said the coaches of the four clubs that reach the semi-finals could go for overseas attachments if negotiations are successful.
"We want the coaches of the top four clubs in the country to be attached with clubs in the National Rugby League (NRL)," he said.
"We would like for them to be attached with the top four from the NRL but we are still negotiating.
"Not only do we want to develop the player but we also want to develop and expose the coaches to top level coaching with top level clubs."
In today's games, Pack Leader Nabua Broncos take on the Burenitu Cowboys in the reserve grade at 10am.

At 2.05pm Police Sharks will take on former champions Dee Cees Nadera Panthers and then Burenitu Cowboys host Pack Leader Nabua Broncos.
