The Fiji National Sports Commission will fund a full time international rugby league coach, who will stay in Fiji and develop the sport at the grass-root level and lead the Fiji Bati in the 2021 World Cup.
Commission Chairperson, Peter Mazey, says this has never been done before as they had always hired international coaches to lead the Bati.
“His job will be the Bati but he will do a lot of works with the Residents which is the development squad, the full growth of sports.”
Meanwhile, Fiji National Rugby League Chair Peni Musunamasi says more talents will now be unveiled with a new coach being based here.
He adds they are in the process of inviting Rugby League Australia to assist them in getting HPU specialists so that they can monitor their club junior grades for better NRL contracts.
Meanwhile, Mick Potter was the last coach that led the Bati in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
