Talica Dakia is the only female official in the Nadroga Rugby Union.
And the 34-year-old was recognised for her contribution at the Nadroga Rugby Union 2015 awards night held at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa – Yanuca Island on Wednesday as the Official of the Year.
Dakia dedicated her eight years to serving Nadroga Rugby because of her love for the game.
“I played rugby when I was in school and all along I wanted to be part of it,” she said. “Although I cannot be part of the rugby team, I can still assist doing administration work with the team.”
She said the award was a pleasant surprise because there were other officials who have also worked hard for the union.
“But I am really honoured and delighted to be the only woman and being recognised for my effort.”
Her role is to look after the administration work of the team and managing the clubs.
“It is good to be recognised for the work and time you contribute for a sport that you love with your heart,” Dakia said.
She said other teams should learn from the Nadroga team by including women in their teams.
“I’m very thankful to the Nadroga Rugby Union and the management of the team for recognising my contribution.”
