Minister praises Oceania Cup win

The Cook Islands Rugby Union national side’s recent Oceania Cup win was celebrated yesterday when CIRU executives paid a visit to Minister of Sport Mark Brown.

“On Behalf of all Cook Islanders, we are very proud of the team,” said Brown. “This is tremendous”. Showing off the Oceania Cup trophy at yesterday’s event were Brown (2nd from right), joined by (L-R) CIRU chief executive Ben Koteka, CIRU president Lara Sadaraka, and team coach Barry George. The Oceania Cup winners will be playing Fiji in 2014 for the Oceania 1 direct qualification spot at Rugby World Cup 2015. Oceania 1 has been drawn with Australia, England, Wales and the winner of the global playoff in what is described as one of the most competitive pools at RWC 2015. “We wish them all the best of luck,” said Brown.
