TRU board sacks 'Ikale Tahi Sevens' coaches

The Tonga Rugby Union board has officially decided early this month to sack Sevens' Head Coach Edward Waqa and Assistant Tevita Tu’ifua because they were not willing to cooperate with a series of measures the board had endorsed.

Considering their dismissal the board said the coaches failed to take the rugby Sevens to the South Pacific Mini Games in Wallis and Futuna and they left the team without informing ICEO.

In August Coach Waqa and Tu’ifua refused to travel by sea after they were told they have to take the MV 'Otuanga'ofa to Wallis for the Mini Games.

The team were then led at the Games by Manu Vunipola. They won bronze.

Vunipola is understood to be the interim coach for Tonga’s Rugby Sevens.

Waqa and Tu'ifua could not be reached for comments.
