Raketekete ready to return to play

Fiji Schoolgirls Captain Ruth Raketekete says she is happy to lead her team to a historic first clash with the Australia Under-18 Schoolgirls after coming back from COVID-19.
The 18-year-old from Nakuruwai Village, Noco, Rewa said her girls were ready to get onto the pitch.
“COVID-19 was a big road block, because it stopped all sports in the country,” Raketekete told FijiLive.
“It has been a good year for schools now that we get to return to play sports.
“I speak for my girls when I say, that we are so excited to be given an opportunity like this, in playing our counterparts from Australia.
“We are ready definitely ready to enjoy ourselves but will be in it to do our best as well.”
The Fiji Schoolgirls and Australian Schoolgirls kick off their match at 1pm tomorrow at Albert Park in Suva.
