Fijian rugby coach Elenoa Kunatuba is coaching the Tuvalu men’s 7s team in this weekend’s Oceania 7s tournament at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

Speaking during a panel discussion of Women in Rugby and the Media Forum at the ANZ Stadium Lounge, the World Rugby Level 3 coach said taking up the job was a challenging one.

Kunatuba said despite being looked down as a woman she kept on with her work and managed to convince them.

“The Tuvaluan Rugby chairman really put his foot down to support me,” she said.

“We had a tournament and I  conducted training for referees.

“I also controlled the first game and dished out yellow cards for infringements and there was pin drop silence. After the game they came to me and said this is the way it should be done.”
