Fiji coach Vern Cotter resigns

He will have remained a little less than three years. Vern Cotter, New Zealand manager of Fiji since 2020resigned from his post. “Fiji Rugby have been blessed to have Vern Cotter on board but the decision (to resign) came directly from him for personal reasons”, clarified Tevita Tuiloa, interim chief executive of the Fiji Rugby Federation. Cotter coached Clermont and Montpellier and took Scotland to the quarter-finals of the World Cup in 2015.

Fiji are therefore looking for a new coach, seven months before the start of the World Cup. “Time is against us to find a coach capable of taking our team to the next level, but we are convinced that we have the players », wanted to reassure Tuiloa.

Opposed to Australia, Wales, Georgia and Portugal in Pool C at the World Cup, Fiji want to do as well as in 2007, already in France, where they had achieved the best performance of their history by reaching the quarter-finals, beaten on the wire by future world champions South Africa.
