Talica Vodo calls for more support from members of the public towards women’s competition in the Skipper Cup Premier­ship.

The Suva women captain made the comment following their 57-5 win over Navosa in the fourth round of competi­tion at the ANZ Stadium yes­terday.

“We need people to come out in numbers and support wom­en’s rugby just like they sup­port the men,” Vodo said.

“Through fans support it will help develop women’s rugby to another level.”

Navosa captain Miliana Bose was grateful of the support they are getting so far.

“We have been getting a lot of support from Navosa players overseas like Semi Kunatani,”Bose said.

“We are all secondary school students and we are still young and playing in this Skipper Cup Premiership will give us exposure and experience .” Suva led 19-5 at halftime.

Namosi women dominate

Namosi women thumped Rewa 57-0 in the Skipper Cup Premiership match at the Thomson Park, Navua yester­day.

Namosi ran in eight tries in a one sided match.

‘I’m pleased with our strike rate,” Namosi coach Mere King said.

“We held our composure un­der pressure and we played good rugby.”
