Petero Civoniceva a member of Fiji NSW Cup bid said they a awaiting a positive outcome from tomorrow’s Fiji National Rugby League board meeting in Suva.

Civoniceva said yesterday there seem to be some confusion on the matter which they intend to clarify.

He pointed out the FNRL board, needs to understand that these are two separate issues.

“The FNRL letter of support, which is what we have built our online campaign upon- to build momentum for all our 250k Fiji NSW ISC Social media fans across the world,” he said.

Civoniceva said this was a harmless exercise which is standard across the board for any professional entities in building and shaping business savvy campaigns around awareness and audience anticipation and participation.

“Let me also say, that myself and my team have been through a rigorous vetting international standard process with the NSW Rugby League to get us where we are today, fully endorsed by the NSWRL Board,” he said.

“This has meant, going through professional standard checks on financial viability and accountability, due diligence, and transparent governance frameworks as a professional set up.”

Civoniceva said once that letter of support is sent to NSWRL, only then can ownership discussions take place.

“That is what I am looking forward to in 2018. This is not a set-back for us. This is all part of a bigger vision that is about growing rugby league not only in Fiji but also benchmarking a model that is mutually shared and owned by Fijians across the world. More importantly the vision supports the future of rugby league in Fiji, in producing giant rugby league players in what is already a competitive and professional environment abroad.”

Civoniceva said he encourages the FNRL board to discuss and think about strategic future potentials, given the crossroads we are all at.

“I trust that due process will be followed at this Wednesday’s FNRL Board meeting with positive outcomes.

“Outcomes that will position us all around the table with mutually clear intentions of moving the business forward in getting a strong, well equipped and well supported team representing Fijians in Fiji and across the world, into the NSW Intrust Super Cup in 2019,” he added.
