The man who had been acting as the Interim C.E.O, who played a vital role in preparing the country for the biggest test match to be hosted by Samoa, now has the task of taking the Union into the future, with all the challenges that come with the job.

Faleomavaega’s appointment was confirmed last night by the Samoa Rugby Union in a statement.

“The Samoa Rugby Union wishes to announce the appointment of Faleomavaega Vincent Fepulea’i as its new C.E.O,” the statement reads.

“Faleomavaega was acting as the Interim C.E.O and was among the 25 applicants for the position which was advertised locally and internationally.”

The Union did not disclose the other candidates. But Faleomavaega was among four candidates shortlisted.

“Faleomavaega was shortlisted and interviewed together with four other outstanding applicants and today the Board of SRU approved the appointment.”

Faleomavaega took over the role from former C.E.O, Fred Amoa.

Since his appointment as interim, he has been instrumental in restoring the faith of the public in the Union after years of controversy involving rugby’s mother body.

During a recent inter view though, Faleomavaega says they have a long way to go.

The focus now, he says, is to up their game and to try and maintain the changes that are happening in moving forward.

Faleomavaega says the S.R.U. is undergoing a lot of changes and reforms in terms of administration.

One of the main issues was with communication. The boys wanted S.R.U. to be upfront. Communication was the number one issue they thought was lacking.

“We’ve always said right from the beginning that our Union is an amateur Union but that doesn’t mean we sit on our laurels. We have to help our game and try and be as professional as we can,” he said.

“With Manu Samoa, most of the team play in a professional environment. They like to see when they come home that the Union is run professionally in terms of how the S.R.U. deals with them and everyone else, including other rugby players, stakeholders and sponsors.”
