FRU Board to meet over vacant CEO role

11:17 am on 18 June 2011

The Fiji Rugby Union is confident a suitable replacement can be found for it's outgoing Chief Executive and insist any decisions made at Rugby House will not compromise the national team's preparations for the World Cup.

Keni Dakuidreketi quit his post on Wednesday after two years at the helm, following previous tenures as an FRU board member and chairman.

Vinnie Wylie reports.

"The current board will meet in Suva today to discuss Mr Dakuidreketi's potential replacement. FRU Chairman Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga says the job will be advertised shortly but he insists that rather than disrupt the country's Rugby World Cup preparations, a new appointment could actually be a good thing. Colonel Tikoitoga says the board will shoulder the added workload until a new CEO is appointed, which he expects will be before the start of the world cup."
