FRU in the dark on new policy
November 29, 2017 4:05 pm
Fiji Rugby Chief Executive John O’Connor has told FBC Sports that they have not received any formal communication from World Rugby about the new policy decision banning players from writing messages on their wrists.
O’Connor says he is aware of the issue being circulated on social media but he has not receive any confirmation from World Rugby.
O’Connor was responding to statements by New Zealand Rugby Players Association boss Rob Nichol slamming the world organisation.
Nicol said earlier the ban, introduced by World Rugby to align with the Olympics, was “completely inappropriate” and he was already working on getting it reversed.
He said the directive was buried in a participation agreement and is fuming over the lack of consultation, despite World Rugby’s statement that their rugby committee approved the ban after consultation last month.
