Fiji National Rugby League Chairman Rear Admiral (Rtd) Viliame Naupoto has urged women to never give up as they can contribute positively to the sport of rugby league.

Speaking at the Western women’s conference in Nadi, Naupoto says women have the opportunity to be agents of change.

He says they are eager to see women continue to contribute to the sport and today is the start of that journey for some of them and the society they represent.


FNRL’s Acting Chief Executive Don Natabe says while they aim to reach a new and diverse audience for the game, they are mindful of the different needs of all rugby league participants, particularly women, children and vulnerable persons.

The inaugural 2021 Women in League Conference is split into two events that will also be held in Suva for participants for the south, east and central regions next Friday and Saturday.
