THE Vodafone Fiji under-20 rugby matches at the Junior World Championship will be aired on television.

This will be made possible through the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation Television (FBC TV). The television company yesterday announced that it will air the 30 JWC matches including all of Fiji's games.

However, FBC chief executive Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said only the matches that coincide with the TV station's new bulletin would be delayed.

"It is the second time we will be bringing to you live the Fiji U20 matches on this television station," Sayed-Khaiyum said during a press conference.

"We're glad to bring it on air, these players are going to be future Flying Fijians and I urge the public to rally behind the boys and support them.

"We will show all of the 30 JWC games including Fiji's matches but all the games that clash with our news will be delayed later on."

Selita Koroi, the Fijiana rugby team manager who was the Fiji Rugby Union representative said they acknowledged FBC TV for its kind support.

"This is going to boost the players to give their best shot because they know everyone at home will be watching them," she said.

"It will certainly lift the spirits of the team and I know it will help the side achieve its aim of finishing in the top eight at the tournament."

Fiji plays Wales in its opening game June 2 before taking on France and Ireland later on. England is the defending champion after edging Wales in the final last year.
