Naitasiri Secondary School Rugby League player Lusiana Qaqagone has been offered a chance to study and play in Japan for three years.

Her love for the sport began at her local school and in events like the Pherrus Schoolgirl’s Trophy Fiji Secondary School, where she represented the Naitasiri Warriors this year.

The year-11 student says she sees this opportunity as a way to represent women in sports and hopes it opens doors for others in the future.
