It was an eye-opening experience for most of the provincial coaches when they attended the Fiji Rugby Coaches Forum in Suva yesterday. Speaking to SUNsports, Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer John O’Connor said, unions had to send in their head coach, assistant coach and strength and conditioning coach to the forum.

“This is the first time for such forum to take place where it involves all the coaches who are involved in the Skipper Cup and the Vodafone Vanua Championship,” he said.

O’Connor indicated that the high profile of technical staff members at FRU were able to share their knowledge and experience with the coaches.

“The provincial coaches are now taught of what they need to do and the level their players must be in so they could be considered for national selection.”

He pointed out that the provincial coaches were taught the importance of proper planning and preparation.

O’Connor reiterated that unions have to comply with their requirements that all coaches must be properly accredited and must hold a Level 2 and above.

“There will be more forum like this as it serves as a pathway for our local coaches. This provides them the opportunity to learn from high profile experts that are now working with FRU.”
