The Fiji Rugby Union will announce Vern Cotter as the new Fiji Airways Flying Fijians head coach at 2pm today.

The union posted on its social media platforms last night “Guess What? We’ve got some Big News Coming Tomorrow.”

The announcement is expected to be made by chairman, Francis Kean at the FRU headquarters.

Former coach John McKee’s contract expired on December 31, 2019.

French journalists had speculated that Vern Cotter, rugby director of Top 14 French side Montpellier could take up the position.

Last Tuesday the club announced that former France coach Philippe Saint-Andre is taking over from Cotter.

Cotter is a distinguished New Zealand coach and former player. He has coached at top level in New Zealand and Europe, including coaching Scotland.
