Former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw is in the country to attend the Rugby Committee meeting which starts in Nadi today.

The two-time Rugby World Cup winning captain arrived yesterday with the chief executive of the International Players Association, Rob Nichol.

“We’re here to represent every player and my main job is just to listen and contribute,” McCaw said.

“I guess we should try and make sure that everyone fits into the world schedule and there is always an argument about how we get more on this sort of things.”

McCaw said the association should try and make sure the welfare of players was looked after properly.

“The players’ welfare should be given priority,” he said.

The Rugby Committee meeting will also examine the opportunities and challenges facing Pacific Islands rugby.

The committee will hear from representatives of the three unions, who are currently implementing key governance reform measures, and the newly-established Pacific Island Players’ Association, with a view to identifying recommendations to strengthen the game in the Islands. In addition there will be side meetings with Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarana, who is also the president of the Fiji Rugby Union.
