“We will have two home test matches to give back to all the Fijian people and for the players to play at home and showcase their skills. We have seen what happened in the Super Rugby when the players played at home. We are hoping to emulate a big crowd.”

While acknowledging the side’s challenges ahead of the Oceania Rugby Women’s Championship, Thomas says they are also excited for the Tests.

She says the players are in good spirits, which is encouraging.

Their Tests are scheduled for the 14th and 20th of June in Suva and Lautoka.

Meanwhile, the Oceania Rugby Women’s Championship will begin this Friday in Brisbane.

Fijiana will face Tonga at 7.30pm.
