Fiji Sports Council CEO Litiana Loabuka said they have sent questions to their contacts regarding the negotiations and are awaiting their reply.

She also acknowledged major stakeholders and sponsors that were behind the success of the Historic Super Rugby match that was played for the first in Fiji at the ANZ Stadium in Suva last week.

Mrs Loabuka said without their contribution the event would not have been a great one. She had also acknowledged the Fijian government for bringing the rugby league match to Fiji.

LOABUKA: “We would like to acknowledge the Fijian Government for allowing the games to be hosted here at the ANZ Stadium and to all those gave in and all the volunteers and all those who were involved.”

Mrs Loabuka also said the Fijian crowd that night was phenomenal.

LOABUKA: “Leading up to the games we were requesting match activation, we were requesting that the crowd participate and get engaged because the crowd engagement would actually affect the feedback as well.”

She also said they had wanted SANZAR to know that Fiji was able to deliver.
