It's a growth opportunity, says Koong

Newly appointed Fijian Drua Head Physiotherapist William Koong is excited to join the new franchise for next season’s Super Rugby Pacific 2022.

He sees this as a growth opportunity for Fiji and for him personally.

“Fiji Rugby’s entry into the Super Rugby programme has been long awaited. In my over 13 years of working for the union I can confidently say that we are more than ready now.”

“It facilitates the next level in the Fijian Rugby Talent Pathway, it will provide more social and economic opportunities for young men and women, and is another growth opportunity in my career, as well as those I continue to mentor.”
Koong said the break into Super Rugby means more opportunities for Fijian players.

“The professional work environment aside, the primary benefit is one’s take-home packet. This will ultimately strengthen the livelihood and welfare of players and their beneficiaries,” he added.
