The Fiji Rugby Union Chief Executive John O’Connor has confirmed they have contracted 17 Fiji 7s players until the World Cup in USA in July.
O’Connor says the players have signed their contracts in January this year.
“From Fiji Rugby Union’s point of view the employment contract is usually a confidential matter between the employee and the employer and we have respected that relationship with the players. Just to confirm the players were issued contracts prior to the Sydney 7s. The coach has given his recommendation and we have contracted those players before they left for Sydney 7s. Contract is from 1st of January 2018. They are contracted until the Rugby World Cup and then we will renew their contract because of the Olympic Games.”
The 13 players’ part of the Fiji 7s team to the Las Vegas tournament are contracted under FRU.
O’Connor says the contract spots are still open and more players could join the list soon depending on their performance.
