The Fiji National Rugby League has appointed former Australian rugby league player, Mathew Adamson, as Fiji Bati’s temporary coach.
The 45-year-old replaces Mick Potter, who stepped down after the Rugby League World Cup last year.
Adamson was the assistant coach of Penrith Panthers and also played for Parramatta Eels and Canberra Raiders.
FNRL Chief Executive, Timoci Naleba, says the coach will prepare the team for the June test match against Papua New Guinea.
The board of FNRL has selected a head coach, it’s a temporary appointment only for the June test against PNG, there is a panel of selectors that will select the team and the team will be selected from a base here in Fiji, and also in Australia. The process of selecting the squad will be depended on the resources available to us and also the time frame that we have at hand, but the selectors will ensure that there we select the best team available for the June test match.
Fiji Bati plays PNG on the 23rd of June in Australia.
