FRU stands by decision

THE Fiji Rugby Union says "Suva Rugby Union's insistence that the outcome of the AGM in Nadi was legitimate is a moot argument".

Suva Rugby Union is unhappy with FRU's decision to rule the AGM in May null and void.

SRU chairman John O'Conner in an earlier interview with this newspaper said "the resolutions made at the AGM should be respected and the board members who were appointed should have been retained".

FRU chairman Filimone Waqabaca in a statement yesterday said there was no quorum, hence the outcomes could not be recognised. "The Fiji Sports Commission confirmed this in its ruling. FRU has advertised in the media on July 30, 2014, that the AGM is scheduled for August 30, where outstanding issues can be sorted among the Fiji rugby members," Waqabaca said.

"The unions are urged to attend so that we can have a quorum, resolve issues and move forward."

Nadroga Rugby Union president Tiko Matawalu said the quorum during the AGM in May was confirmed by the FRU.

Matawalu added rugby's governing body was trying to push the blame on the unions.
