The PM said rugby was a major part of Fijian life, and Fiji was proud to have hosted Round 15 of the Super Rugby clash.

PM BAINIMARAMA; “And that is why ladies and gentlemen, we want to host another game of Super Rugby next year. Yes, we want Super Rugby again and we will make it our business to bring it back to Fiji. We have the facilities. We have the capacity. And most importantly, we have the passion for rugby.

Bainimarama congratulated the Chiefs side for winning the history match played at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday.

PM BAINIMARAMA: “Congratulations to the Chiefs on the big win, and to both teams for a hard-fought match that shows how competition among elite athletes raises the quality of the sport every day.¬†Fiji is now only one of eight nations to have hosted this competition and the first small island State to ever do so, joining Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina, Japan, Singapore and the UK. This for us in the Pacific is a major feat.”
