Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama who is also the President of the Fiji Rugby Union is unlikely to attend the World Cup in London England.
World Rugby has informed the Fiji Rugby Union that there aren’t enough funds to pay for Bainimarama’s attendance.
He says his inability to watch the game in London is nothing compared to what it means to the country to have the Flying Fijians take on the big names.
“It’s a team to be reckoned with. We have a wonderful team which has matured over the last few world cups. We have good management and training cadre. People of Fiji need to get together and tell our team that we’re behind them and we want 80 minutes rugby.”
The Fiji Rugby Union offered to pay for Bainimarama’s trip to the World Cup as FRU President.
However this was turned down by the PM who says we still need to fundraise for the team itself.
