“There’s a lot of NRL competitions to see Fijian ladies that play in the NRL competitions, to see 14 players from the NRL system. We were so surprised so will try to mix those players with our current players.”

Dakuitoga was surprised by the incredible talent that Fijian women possess.

He suggests that if these women are given the necessary resources, they will be a formidable team.
