“All the new players have done really well, it took a bit to get used to the game of but they are fast learners.

“They picked up on all the little tips that have been given during training so it is really good to have a mixture of old experienced girls and young bloods in the team.”

The other four new players are Vasiti Foster, Joanna Thelma, Litiana Varea and Salanieta Rakaususu.
