The good news keeps on coming for Women’s rugby league in Fiji.
Not even 24 hours after Fiji’s historical gold medal win at the Pacific Games two members of the women’s Nines team were named in the Auckland Warriors 22 member squad for the NRL Women’s Premiership next season.
Former Fijiana 7s reps Roela Radiniyavuni and Timaima Ravisa have secured contracts which is a first for Fiji women’s rugby league.
Fiji Bulikula 9s captain Timaima Ravisa continues to create history but this time as one of the first two Fijians to secure professional contracts overseas just months after switching to rugby league.
Ravisa and Roela Radiniyavuni have both been playing in the Auckland club competition this season but now it’s official, they are the first two local players to play top-level rugby league.
The new NRL Women’s Premiership kicks off in September.
