The New South Wales Rugby League has confirmed that a Fiji team will join the Ron Massey Cup next season with a view to eventually play in the Canterbury Cup NSW.
The Kaiviti Silktails, will join the competition in 2020 with a view towards boosting the development of the game in Fiji and provide a new pathway for Fijian players to rise to the NRL.
Former Bati Petero Civoniceva says this was an achievement that took six years in the making.
He adds this will be a wonderful pathway to help local talent chase their dream of playing professional rugby league.
Civoniceva was a driving force behind the bid and was present when the news was announced ahead of last Friday’s Prime Minister’s XIII challenge in Suva.
