The Fiji Rugby Union is disappointed that none of our deserving nominees received an award at the WR Awards night held in London. While we respect the achievement of the All Blacks during the year, we strongly believed that the impact of the Fiji 7s Team winning back to back  World 7s Series titles and more importantly winning the Gold Medal at the Rio Olympic Games had a far greatly impact to the game of Rugby globally.

We believe that our 7s Team with the merger resources available to them have outperformed any other Rugby team in 2016. The Rugby World expects the All Blacks to do well every time because they have all resources available to them.

Lastly the impact Osea Kolinisau has on the game of 7s in the last two seasons far out class any performance by Sebalo Sanatla and we are disappointed he was not awarded the 7s Best player of the year.

The FRU is in the process of expressing its concerns and disappointment to WR”.
