Saqanavere appointed as U18 Fiji coach

SCHOOL teacher Masi Saqanavere has been appointed coach of the Fiji under-18 side.

Equipped with a World Rugby level three coaching certificate, Saqanavere’s first assignment is to prepare a team for a tour to New Zealand next month.

His selection comes after coaching the Ratu Kadavulevu School U15 team to victory in the Deans competition last week.

Saqanavere’s appointment by the Fiji Rugby Union was announced this morning.

FRU chief executive John O’Connor said Saqanavere was selected ahead of two provincial level coaches after interviews last week.

The Vodafone Fiji U18 side will play New Zealand Maori, New Zealand Barbarians, New Zealand School Boys and an Australian School Boys side from September 26 to October 4.
