National rep Adi Wati Vavaitamana aims to go a step further in her 18-year touch rugby career.
Vavaitamana has been playing touch rugby since her years in primary school and has so far only represented Fiji in the 2019 South Pacific Games.
She was part of the Fiji women’s team that finished third in last year’s Pacific Games.
Currently playing for the Nabua-based Eastern Hawks team, Vavaitamana hopes to impress national selectors as scouts begin for the Touch Rugby World Cup in 2023.
“I’ve achieved going to the SPG last year and now I’m looking forward to the competition again. The main aim is to represent touch rugby further internationally especially the world cup in three years’ time and for another SPG.”
Vavaitamana and the Eastern Hawks women’s team reached the final of the Suva Touch Rugby competition held on Saturday at the St Marcellin Primary School ground in Vatuwaqa.
