Yasawa Remains In Vanua Comp, Bua Given 48 Hours To Appeal Decision

The Fiji Rugby Union has con­firmed that after considering the email complaint from Bua Rugby Union and the evidence provid­ed by Suva Rugby Union and consid­ering the provisions of the Terms of Participation for the 2022 Fiji Rugby Vodafone Vanua Championship, that we have upheld the outcome of the Bua v. Yasawa match played on Saturday which was won by Yasawa 21 – Bua 20.

Bua Rugby Union has, however, been given the opportunity to appeal the de­cision within 48 hours of them receiv­ing the decision from Fiji Rugby and if they exercise their right to appeal, the matter will be referred to the World Rugby accredited Judicial Officer for consideration.

Mr. O’Connor added that anticipating an appeal from Bua against the deci­sion, we have also made the decision to defer the final to next week.
