1) Why Do the People Of Fiji still need to fundraise for the national 15s team to the Rugby World Cup, when the Vodafone sponsorship of the FRU is worth $8 a year, $40m over five years?
2) Or is the truth of the matter contained in the June 12 2015 letter to Vodafone in which FRU accuses the FNPF-owned mobile company of ‘at best misleading, at worst fraudulent’ behaviour?
3) Is this alleged misleading or fraudulent behaviour by Vodafone why the country’s citizens are still being pressed to fundraise for the Fiji team using You Tube begging clips from 15s coach John Mckee and 7s coach Ben Ryan?
World Rugby has informed the Fiji Rugby Union that there aren’t enough funds to pay for Bainimarama’s attendance.
He says his inability to watch the game in London is nothing compared to what it means to the country to have the Flying Fijians take on the big names.
“It’s a team to be reckoned with. We have a wonderful team which has matured over the last few world cups. We have good management and training cadre. People of Fiji need to get together and tell our team that we’re behind them and we want 80 minutes rugby.”
The Fiji Rugby Union offered to pay for Bainimarama’s trip to the World Cup as FRU President.
However this was turned down by the PM who says we still need to fundraiser for the team itself. Source: FBC News
