Suva - Australian John McKee will coach Fiji at the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan after the Fiji Rugby Union announced on Friday his contract as national coach had been extended by two years. 

Union chairperson Francis Kean said McKee's reappointment would build continuity and confidence ahead of the world tournament in Japan. 

McKee last weekend coached 10th-ranked Fiji to a win over fifth-ranked Scotland.

Fiji next faces Samoa and Tonga in the Pacific Nations Cup which doubles as an Oceania World Cup qualifying tournament. 

McKee said: "I've never had any doubt that this is where I've wanted to work ... I think Fiji has more potential than any other nation in the world to reach great heights."
