But in a twist of fate, this could also be Lalabalavu’s last game for the Drua women as she will leave the country next week for a three-year scholarship and rugby contract in Fukuoka, Japan.

“I plan to give all my best in this game against the Reds and also will work hard in Japan to try and make the national side for the upcoming Women’s World Cup.”

Lalabalavu will pair up with props Anasimeci Korovata and Mereoni Vonosese in the front row when the Drua Women take on the Reds at 3:30pm on Sunday.
