New nation claim they are ‘on the verge’ of joining Six Nations

The Fiji Rugby Union has claimed it is on “the verge of joining the Six Nations” in November in a statement.

However, a Six Nations spokesperson has responded by saying that the Pacific islanders may play in a new series of matches involving Six Nations teams but would not join the main competition.

Coupled with possible involvement in southern hemisphere competitions, Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) chief executive John O’Connor said “they were great opportunities for Fiji Rugby which we could only dream of in the past.”

He added: “We are on the verge of joining the Six Nations rugby competition and have Super Rugby, New Zealand and Australia knocking on our doors.”
