Our national women’s Fijiana 15s rugby team has a chance to book a spot in the Women’s Rugby World Cup in 2017.

But first they will need to beat their Melanesian sisters from Papua New Guinea tomorrow at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

For both teams, this is their first encounter.

The team that wins tomorrow will take their place alongside two Asian teams in the final qualifying event for the WRWC in Hong Kong in December next year.

The match kicks off at 3pm. Tickets are sold at $5 flat and children under 12 years are free.
