It’s a dream come true for Rooster Chicken Fijiana 15s player Bulou Vasuturaga to have joined the national team for the Women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand next month.

She says it was challenging for her at the start because of her fitness, but through the dedication and encouragement of the coaching team, she was able to be part of the Oceania squad.

The mother of three says her children have been her main motivation as she wants to be a good role model, and she also wants to show them that anything is possible if God is by their side.

The Fijiana’s first match during the Women’s Rugby World Cup is against England at 3.45pm next Saturday, then they will play South Africa at 4.45pm on the 16th of October and take on France at 6.15pm on the 22nd of October in their final pool match.
