Fijiana's inclusion in RWC is huge: Stanley

Women's sports advocate Ashley Stanley has described the Rooster Chicken Fijiana XV's inclusion in the 2022 Rugby World Cup as "huge for the Pacific."
 
According to Stanley, Women's rugby history is due to be made this year as Fijiana can create huge excitement in their debut tournament.  
 
This comes after the Fijiana Drua competed in The Super W competition last month, remained undefeated and stole the title from the NSW Waratahs.
 
"I hope they get a lot of our community out. For the Fijians, it's going to be something huge," she told NZ Herald.
 
Stanley said it is super important for Pacific women to participate in sport.
 
"It's the men who have traditionally already got pathways to go overseas. The appetite is there, we just need to be able to get behind our women."
 
"Not just playing. Coaching, administration, refereeing, volunteering, governance. It's all of those roles we need to be encouraging."
 
The Fijiana XVs will face the Wallaroos in their second test at 7pm today.
