Former national rugby coach Brad Johnstone got a befitting farewell yesterday after he was awarded a Honorary Officer of the Order of Fiji.

Johnstone was awarded the medal by the Speaker of the House of Representatives at Government House yesterday. Speaking at the award, Dr Kurisaqila said that it was only right that a medal of such
distinction be given to the former All Black.

"Brad deserves it and I am proud to have been given the task of awarding the medal to you today," Dr Kurisaqila said. "We will definitely miss you and we hope that someday you will come back and help Fiji rugby," he added.

Johnstone was lost for words and described as an achievement. "This is just another beautiful experience from Fiji that I will definitely cherish it for the rest of my life," he said.
