The new Samoa Rugby Union Chief Executive says he would like to see a unified, committed and supportive rugby community operating.

Fred Amoa has taken over the helm and says the national game has a number of challenges and issues to overcome.

Amoa says he hopes his leadership can lead to the Union offering the game as much support as possible.

"'The development of the sport here in Samoa as well with the unions outside of Apia. Giving the players the opportunity to improve their skills as well as those who are coaching, as well as referees. And also developing women's rugby, as well as administrators, who are looking after the provincial unions, as well as the main office here in Apia. Looking at a holistic approach."
