“Starting off from provincial and coming onto this level of rugby, there’s a massive change, the standard has to be up there. I’m grateful to the senior players who have been very helpful and if I’m not sure about something I will ask them”

Despite facing numerous obstacles, Veidreyaki expresses gratitude for the seniors who are supportive and guiding her along the way.

The side is currently gearing up for their first test against Japan tomorrow at 6pm at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva.
