Koto Calls For Fair Treatment

Flying Fijians hooker Sunia Koto strongly believes that local rugby clubs and provincial unions need to be given more attention.

The Lauan rugger who plays for Narbonne Club in France would be renewing his contract soon and said it is time for Fiji Rugby Union to have the right people on board which would not affect the morale of our national players when on national duties.

Koto told SUNsports in France the financial constraints and not having the right people for the job has affected the morale of players.

“We are treated well here and when these clubs (overseas clubs) are good to us, we give things our absolute best,

“Fijian players leave Fiji with heavy hearts but do so to make their dreams come true,” Koto said.

The 34-year-old was also part of the Vodafone Flying Fijians team in the recent November Northern tour.

Koto also stated that he intends to return to Fiji one day but he is not keen on pursuing anything to do with rugby in Fiji.

The Vodafone Flying Fijians have dropped to 12th spot in the World rugby rankings behind Japan which is now in 11th place, Samoa sits in 10th place. New Zealand leads the table followed by South Africa who is in second place and Ireland in third place.

The John McKee coached side is grouped in Pool A at the 2015 England Rugby World cup alongside Australia, England, Wales and Uruguay.
