She adds, Fiji will add a lot of competition on the field as they are starting to redevelop their name on the international scene.

“Some of the stories of those Fijiana women are tremendous and I think that the captain alluded to it today some of the struggles that they’ve come through, the funding they’ve had to raise, their domestic situation and their employment. That authenticity and voice of a young woman are very human stories and it’s one of the particular attributes of women’s spirit.”
