Written By : MACIU MALO. The Fiji Sports Council is disappointed with the decision made by Fiji Rugby Union in shifting the venue to Lautoka for the match between the Flying Fijians and the New Zealand Maoris.
Last week FSC’s Paul Yee met with the FRU CEO Ratu Timoci Tavanavanua to discuss on the finer details of hosting the game at the National Stadium in Suva.
But that meeting was just a formality as Lautoka’s Churchill Park has already been secured by the FRU with booking already done and confirmed to the Lautoka City Council.
Yee said the FRU is disorganized and inconsistent.
“The meeting we had with Ratu Timoci was just a waste of time because they have already booked Churchill Park for the game.”
“In the meeting, Ratu Timoci requested if we can make slide adjustments to the charges which we have agreed on and Ratu Timoci was happy with it.”
“But in the end he can’t do anything but to shift the game venue to Lautoka because he said they have already booked the hotels and the ground.”
“This shows that the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing, they are inconsistent and disorganised.”
“It shows that the FRU has different agenda.”
Yee also lashed out on the comments made by FRU board member Mosese Nailumu last week.
“Nailumu said in one of the dailies that the FRU wants to teach the FSC a lesson.”
“I don’t know what lesson is Nailumu talking about and that message was arrogant.”
He said the FRU should decide on who is really their spokesman and it seems anybody at FRU can talk anything regarding the FRU.
“I don’t know who is really their spokesman because all of them Ratu Timoci, Nailumu and Vilikesa Rinavuaka are negotiating on behalf of the FRU and we don’t know who to believe.”
Meanwhile, Yee has maintained that the Battle of the Giants tournament will be held at the National Stadium and not Churchill’s Park.
“I spoken with Hari Naicker and it’s confirmed the BOG will be held here at the National Stadium.”
