The Fiji Rugby Union’s ap­plication for a World Rug­by Council seat has final­ly been unanimously endorsed at the World Rugby Council meeting held earlier this week.

This was confirmed by FRU chief executive officer, John O’Connor who received feed­back from World Rugby in Dub­lin, Ireland on Wednesday.

O’Connor highlighted this was one of the greatest achieve­ments in FRU’s history.

“We have been playing organ­ised rugby the last 106 years and never had an official representa­tive in the World Rugby decision making Council,” O’Connor said yesterday.

“To receive this endorsement and become an official member of the World Rugby Council is a momentous occasion not only for the FRU but for rugby in Fiji.

He acknowledged and thanked the current Board of Directors particularly the leadership of the chairman, Commander Francis Kean.

He also thanked and acknowl­edged the support of the presi­dent of FRU and the Govern­ment of the day for its support in the reform journey of FRU.
