Lautoka RU investigates boycotting players

THE Lautoka Rugby Union has launched an investigation into allegations that some players have been boycotting training for the Skipper Cup.

This was evident during its last game against Namosi when the Maroons coaching staff had to field a makeshift team because regular players were not available.

Union secretary Salesi Vulakoro said Osea Naiqama had vacated his position as chairman to become the team manager and lead the investigation.

Vulakoro said Panapasa Namoko had been approached to take the chairmanship.

"Some of the clubs are not releasing their players for training," he said.

"It is clear in the constitution that if the clubs continue to do this then they can be suspended. There are players who are trying to dictate terms and are demanding for money.

"Right now we do not have a sponsor and are trying hard to get one. The special general meeting could not be held for the second time last Saturday because there was no quorum.

"Some clubs are trying to get a motion of no confidence against the current executives. But this has to be done in accordance to the constitution. The detailed financial report is ready."

The Maroons are placed at the bottom of the competition with two points.
