Fiji Sun - - SPORTS - OSEA BOLA Edited by Sere­ana Salalo

The Nadi Rugby Union is gear­ing up for the Fiji Rugby Union an­nual gen­eral meet­ing (AGM) sched­uled for the Novo­tel Suva Lami Bay on July 18. And they will nom­i­nate cur­rent chair­man/for­mer pres­i­dent Sekove Tuilakeba as one of the board of di­rec­tors.

Nadi Rugby Union ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­ber Jeff Ta­mata said they were all ready to go and con­trib­ute to the bet­ter­ment of rugby.

“We have our books in or­der and our ac­counts were au­dited in Jan­uary as re­quired un­der the FRU con­sti­tu­tion,”he said.

“We are ready to con­trib­ute to the growth of our na­tional sport.”

Some unions al­ways missed out on vot­ing in the AGM in the past for not hav­ing an au­dited ac­count. “I think Suva and Nadi have au­dited their ac­counts,”Ta­mata said. Among the items on the agenda is the elec­tion of board di­rec­tors. “We have nom­i­nated our long serv­ing rugby ad­min­is­tra­tor Sekove Tuilakeba as one of the board mem­bers,” Ta­mata said.

“He has a wealth of rugby and ad­min­is­tra­tive knowl­edge and should be an as­set.”

The cur­rent board of di­rec­tors are Fran­cis Kean (chair­man), Carl C Ng­amoki(deputy chair­man), Bobby Naimawi, Jay Whyte, Dr Berlin Kafoa, Max Ols­son, Daniel Whippy,Mere Rako­roi and Ratu Aisea W Vo­sailagi.

The elec­tions of the di­rec­tors are based on ro­ta­tion ba­sis as per the pro­vi­sion of the con­sti­tu­tion and such di­rec­tors are also el­i­gi­ble for re-elec­tion.

Ku­natani Helps

Mean­while, Olympian and Fiji Air­ways Fly­ing Fi­jians flanker Semi Ku­natani is help­ing out the Nadi team dur­ing train­ing. Ku­natani is among the overseas –based play­ers wait­ing for the bor­ders to re­open to team up with Top 14 club Cas­tres in France.

“We’re grate­ful to Semi for help­ing the boys out at train­ing,”Ta­mata said.

“We will play Nadroga in a friendly this Satur­day be­fore we take on Ya­sawa in the Skip­per Cup Premier­ship match on July 25.
