The Tonga Rugby Union has appointed Talanoa Fuka Kitekei'aho, as its Interim CEO.

The former 'Ikale Tahi international says he plans to re-establish the High Performance and Development units, to help identify talented young players with an eye on becoming future test players.

The plan is to attach the players to overseas clubs for added exposure, with players remitting money back home to help the Tongan economy.
