Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced the possibility of a preseason NRL match being hosted in Fiji in 2021.

While making the announcement, Morrison also welcomed the fact that Fiji’s Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is a Wallabies fan before he is an All Blacks fan.

He says he is sure that Wallabies coach Michael Cheika would be very pleased.

Morrison has also announced that the Australian government will be providing support for the travel costs associated with Fiji entering a team to compete in the NSW Rugby League Intrust Super Premiership in 2020.

He says they also look forward pre-season NRL matches being played in the Pacific including a match in Fiji in 2021.

Morrison says the Australia government will also work with Netball Australia to help prepare the Fiji Netball Team for the Netball World Cup in the UK in July 2019.
