Nadroga Rugby Union is in a transition period after its annual general meeting last week.

The change is expected to see the Stallions galloping at full speed to catch the winds of change within the Fiji rugby circle after its dismal performance in the past season.

The union conducted its AGM last week where a wholesale change in office bearers took place to see a new leadership in the next five years.

“The old executives are currently handing over everything to the new executives and we will present our plans to our patron and paramount chief, the Turaga na Kalevu on Friday before we put our plans into play,” new secretary Manoa Veremalua said.

“This week we had presented our compliance report to the Fiji Rugby Union including our financial report and the strategy plan for the next team.

“We want to get back to the top as soon as possible and that will depend on how well we present ourselves moving forward.

“There are a lot of things in the strategic plan including the transition of the union from its current position in Fiji.

“There will be changes because we want to be strictly professional in our approach.

“This will include the advertising of top position including the coach and the team managers.

“We want to strengthen our development programs starting from our Kaji rugby, primary and secondary school competitions, under-19, clubs and provincial team.

“We want to start our club competition early, so we are calling on clubs to submit their reports to be FRU compliant so that we can move forward.”

Meanwhile, the Nadroga rugby team is preparing for this weekend’s Skipper Cup match which will be against Namosi at Thomson Park in Navua.
