Suva backs Nadroga

THE Suva Rugby Union has thrown its support behind the Nadroga Rugby Union and asked the Fiji Rugby Union to meet their demands.

Earlier this week, Nadroga threatened to boycott the Skipper Cup semi-final against Suva if FRU did not pay the monies and rewards promised by tomorrow.

Suva Rugby Union chairman John O'Conner said they were also victims and wanted the FRU to adhere to the deadline.

"We support Nadroga in terms of the issues and we call on FRU to resolve these issues by the deadline that Nadroga has given and we hope FRU will act and the matters are resolved," he said.

"Some of our players also won Man of the Match awards but have not been paid to date so I think the FRU should meet our demands."

O'Conner also called on other semi-finalists to support Nadroga and not sit back and watch.

"We also request if Nadi and Naitasiri could support Nadroga on this issue because the players are the ones suffering.

"Nadroga has set a deadline and we hope FRU can meet them."

Meanwhile, O'Conner also admitted that they were not happy when the FRU annual general meeting in May was deemed null and void.

"The resolutions made at the AGM should be respected and the board members who were appointed should have been retained."

He also said they had not written to the FRU with regards to these matters yet. A statement from FRU said they would give their response today.
