Having a Fiji team play for the In­trust Super Premiership NSW in 2020 would provide a wonderful opportunity to perform on the big stage in Australia, says Petero Civoniceva.

The former Vodafone Fijian Bati cap­tain and Australia rugby league legend said the Fiji National Rugby League now looks forward to the support of the Aus­tralian Government and playing for the Premiership was a missing link in the development pathway in Fiji.

He was positive the support from Aus­tralia would start soon.

“We are positioning ourselves for the 2020 entry so that’s why Australia’s fi­nancial support is the key to make it hap­pen, I’m very excited,” he said.

Civoniceva also highlighted the interest shown by Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison towards women in sport.

He said it was a huge importance for Fiji.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity avail­able for young girls and women in Fiji to aspire whether it’s on the rugby field or the netball court whatever the sport maybe,” he said.
