Hooker Zuriel Togiatama describes the support and experience so far as surreal.

“It’s been unreal, especially with the upsets that we have had, we’ve had more support come through in that sense. We’ve had a lot of families and friends check on us emotionally and spiritually, you can definitely feel the energy coming through.”

Coach Simon Raiwalui says they appreciate all the support and will need it in their remaining pool matches against Georgia and Portugal.
