Pacific Rugby Alliance to meet in Suva next month
The top brass of the Pacific Islands Rugby Alliance will meet in Suva next month to discuss their upcoming tour of the Northern Hemisphere at the end of the year. The Alliance will also be naming its squad and coach during the meeting. It is understood that Samoan mentor and former All Black Michael Jones will coach the 2006 Islanders team. The team is set to play three tests against Scotland, Wales and Ireland during the tour. The tour will have an impact on the national team with Fiji not having any more build up for the World Cup in France next year.
