Former All Black and newly appointed New Zealand rugby chief executive Mark Robinson has highlighted the need for World Rugby to do more for Pacific Nations.

Robinson has been named as long time New Zealand rugby boss Steve Tew's successor.

Robinson says World Rugby, the game's international governing body, needs to do more for tier two nations such as Fiji, Samoa and Tonga who struggle to field their top teams, as players are often under pressure from their European clubs not to play for the countries.

Robinson says that was evident in the All Blacks thrashing of Tonga.
