Fiji NSW Rugby League bid

Date: 22/4/18

Petero Civoniceva today proudly announced, “After years of careful consideration to get this project off the ground by 2019, we have chosen a new interim CEO to lead this project. Tia Roko will lead the team as the CEO in getting the project solidly set up and leading the way for us until we have a new board to commence advertising and looking for a person we see best to lead us into the future.

I have always believed in being innovative in business strategies and I believe Tia Roko is the best fit for us in moving forward. Tia has a background in developing organisational strategy and sound governance. She has expertise in engagement across sectors and working with boards to ensure organisations and businesses are compliant in their governance and strategically placed to be the best they can be. I am proud to announce: she is of Fijian background and the first Fijian born woman, to lead a Rugby League Club from the Pacific. Her role will be to helps us to set up the back end of our business including the recruitment of a solid and strategic board of directors, as well as setting up compliance mechanisms to allow us to operate in Fiji and in Australia.

We will be announcing our Board, Operations and Coaching staff in the next few days, as we prepare the team to compete in 2019. I ask that all our supporters show their support by working with us and support our revenue raising strategies in the next few months. We have been told we cannot get this project off the ground- but I and my team believe we can. This is not about us- this is about community as I have always believed. This is also about facilitating opportunities for Rugby League players from across our beautiful islands of Fiji. Our first event is June 8th, 2018, and we will be launching the team name and apparels at this event. I thank all those who have put up their hand in support, and those who have continued to support us in this journey.”
