And the International Rugby Board is committed to continue to invest in training and education to improve the quality of rugby and player’s welfare at all levels of the game in the region.

IRB regional training co-ordinator Talemo Waqa said the ‘Super Month’ was to lead towards a significant increase in the delivery of essential courses throughout the Pacific Islands.

“It was a good success as this has the targeted aim of improving administration within FORU Member Unions,” said Waqa.

“This is upskilling personnel who will then have the ability to roll out courses in their own unions and regions.

“We use to have super week, but now we have adapted to super month which is cost-effective and secondly we make it a professional one so they go through all the programmes. “

The extensive programme comprises of an IRB Trainer Course (to accredit people to licence IRB Educators), IRB Educator course (to accredit people to run IRB courses), Strength and Conditioning Level 2 Course, Oceania Sport Education Programme MiSO (sports management) Course,

Match Official Level Three Course, and Coaching of Match Official Level Two Course.

FRU development manager (West) Joeli Tubu said the ‘Super Month’ was a good initiative to see continuous professional development (CPD) programme that would surely enhance the education process of the participant.

“We can share best practice and learning’s to assist in delivering these important educational courses back to the union’s including the Kaji and secondary school coaches that we look after,” Tubu said.

The event has drawn participants from Fiji, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti and Vanuatu who are IRB accredited coaches, match officials, sports science and sports medicine practitioners in the Oceania region.
