A Diamond Among Our Flying Fijians

A Diamond Among Our Flying Fijians

One outstanding figure stood out during the launch of the Fiji Rugby Union 2018 Test Series and Pacific Nations Cup launch at the Albert Park Pavilion last night.

Before Fiji Airways Flying Fijians head coach John McKee was introduced, the towering figure of Demelza Fellowes captured the attention of invited guests.

The 1.88metre Wodonga, Australia native is the new marketing and sponsorship manager for FRU.

But what’s interesting is she is shining example of the high profile sportspeople who still managed to be successful in life after representing her country.

She represented the Australian Diamonds netball team in 2004-2005 and played in the domestic competitions for the Adelaide Thunderbirds, Otago Rebels, Canterbury Tactix,Queensland Firebirds.

In 2009, Fellowes was selected as part of the world 7 teams where players from England, Jamaica, Samoa and Australia (not part of the Diamonds squad) formed a team to play against the Silver Ferns.

In late 2011, Fellowes confirmed she would be returning to top level netball.

In 2013 she played again for the Queensland Firebirds and was named in the Australian squad to play a series against the Malawi Queens.
