THE Fiji Rugby Union in conjunction with the UN Women will host the second annual National Girls Provincial 7s tournament at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on Wednesday, December 12.
Women’s development manager Vela Naucukidi says the competition was introduced as the next level of progression through tag rugby and the Get into Rugby programme, to retain the players in the game.
“The National Girls Provincial 7s tournament shows an encouraging pathway to the next stages of playing rugby and ultimately lays a platform for talent development towards future Fijiana 7s and 15s players,” she said.
The Participating provincial programmes and teams for the 2018 National Girls Provincial 7s tournament are Cakaudrove, Macuata, Suva, Tailevu, Naitasiri, Nadi, Lautoka, Namosi, Northland, Nadroga, Rewa and Bua.
