Vote of no confidence

THE Suva Rugby Union (SRU) has once again asked Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) to get its house in order.

Yesterday, the FRU annual general meeting was once again called off because of lack of quorum.

SRU chairman John O'Conner said this was the third time this year the AGM had been called off.

"Last time when they had the AGM in Nadi, we had more than 30 delegates present but this time, there was only around 20," he said.

"This is the third time this year that the FRU board has failed to convene the AGM for rugby in this country as a result of lack of quorum."

O'Connor said the lack of quorum is an indication of the delegates' lack of confidence in the FRU board.

"The SRU has submitted a motion, for a vote of no confidence on several board members, Dr Esther Williams, Mosese Taga and Daniel Whippy.

"The unions that were present at the AGM were informed of the resignation of FRU board member Daniel Whippy early this morning (yesterday) as a result of this motion for a vote of no confidence.

"The SRU acknowledges Whippy for his contribution to FRU during his term and thank him for doing the honourable thing in resigning.

"This is a heed to both Esther Williams and Mosese Taga to follow suit and also offer their resignation for the sake of rugby in this country."
