Main Award Nominees Announced For Fiji Rugby Awards Night

Fiji Rugby Union has announced the nominees for the Fiji Rugby Awards night slated to happen on Saturday, January 14th 2017. The Main Awards categories have three nominees which were shortlisted from candidates submitted by the Affiliate Unions of the Fiji Rugby Union nationwide.

“We are pleased to be able to announce our nominees for the Main Award Categories of the Fiji Rugby Awards Night this week Saturday. It was a hard decision to shortlist these names from some fantastic candidates submitted. Unfortunately, there can only be three nominees and one winner so we are happy with our selection.

The winners of the Main Awards will be kept top secret until the night. Only a select number of people know the results which will only be known during the announcement at our first Awards Night.” Said John O’Connor, CEO of Fiji Rugby Union.
