Former Flying Fijians mentor Inoke Male has been announced as the new Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua head coach.
The Fiji Rugby Union made the announcement this afternoon adding that Male will also be the Fijiana 15s mentor.
His contract is for three years.
Male takes over from Senirusi Seruvakula who won the Super W with the Fijiana Drua last year and resigned from the position in early January.
FRU Board Member Mere Rakoroi in announcing the appointment says there is no better man fitting for the job than the former Flying Fijian coach who has been involved with the Fijiana since last year.
“Male fits the job very well and he has been acting as head coach in assisting the team in preparation for their Super W title defense. Male has been with the Fijiana Dua since they started the maiden journey last year and he was also part of the Fijiana 15s coaching panel in the rugby world cup in New Zealand.”
Male says he is honored to given the responsibility to lead the Fijiana in it’s second Super W season.
“I’m humbled to be chosen as the coach. I thank the board for their trust and I wish to tell the media and whole of Fiji that we will do our best to defend the trophy this year.”
Male is expected to name his set of assistant coaches and the Fijiana Drua management soon.
