One More Thing: No try for Digicel
Digicel, owned by Denis O’Brien, has sponsored the team since 2006 and believes it has a pre-emption clause in its contract that gives it the right to renew it, upon expiry, if it matches the highest offer on the table.
The cash-strapped Fijian Rugby Union recently signed a 40 million Fijian dollars (€15m) deal with Vodafone. Digicel tried to injunct the deal until it gets a proper court hearing, but failed.
It will get another chance to reverse the deal at a fresh injunction hearing next Thursday.
