FRU chairman Francis Kean said Fiji had been regarded as the minnows of the rugby world for far too long.

"Now with our recent on the field performance in both the sevens and fifteens codes, it illustrates that we are a Super Power in rugby especially in 7s. We should be maximising the opportunities that are available globally for our players, our coaches and our technical staffs," Kean said in the FRU statement.

He said the signing of the MOU was timely as they wanted to maximise on the arise expected in rugby in China.

The FRU press release stated that CRFU would be looking to the FRU for assistance in developing 7s and 15s respectively.

The release also revealed the exchange programs for coaches, technical staff and players whereas the CRFU have big plans for the game in China.
