Dual international Roela Radiniyavuni is deciding on her next move since she received a few overseas offers to return to rugby league.

The 31-year-old is a member of the Fijiana women’s rugby 7s team that won the bronze medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday, Radiniyavuni confirmed that she had been in contact with her former club in New Zealand.

The Richmond Roses women rugby league team are based at Grey Lynn Park. The club work closely with National Rugby League (NRL) club Auckland Warriors and New Zealand Rugby League.

Radiniyavuni played for the Auckland Warriors in the NRL Women’s Premiership in 2019 after a sterling performance for the Fijian Bulikula (national women’s rugby league team) in their 28-0 win over the Papua New Guinea Orchids at the Leichhardt Oval in Sydney.

“The contract offer has been sent to me. I’m still looking at it but have yet to make up my mind. It was a great feeling to play in the Olympics,” she said.
