All allowances owed to the Fijiana 15s players for the duration of the 2022 Women’s Rugby World Cup and the Oceania Women’s Championship 2023 have been paid in full.

Fiji Rugby Football Union Trust Board Interim Chairman Peter Mazey says they are pleased to have fulfilled their commitment to the players that was discovered during the impasse.

Mazey says this increase reflects their support for their hard work and dedication to their cause for equality and fairness.

He says the discovery of the shortfall kick-started an internal FRU process of identification, clarification and finally, resolution of the payment issues.

The Interim Chair says in the end, the female players were invited to the Fiji National Sports Commission where their financial details were sorted out and payments made subsequently.

Fijiana 15s Captain Sereima Leweniqila expressed her gratitude on behalf of the team and acknowledged the Fiji Rugby Football Union Trust Board for this significant support and closure of payment issues.

She says it’s a great boost to their morale, future games, and women’s rugby in general.

The trustees wish the girls all the best in their future games and are committed to working closely with them to ensure player welfare is well looked after.
