Tisolo lands Japan contract

Former Fijiana 7s star Luisa Tisolo has secured a contract to play professional rugby in Japan.

The Rewa lass joined the Mies Pearls Women’s Rugby Club earlier this week.

Tisolo missed out on the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games due to an eleventh hour injury and had since been a key asset leading to Suva’s top of the table performance in the Marama Championship this year.

Tisolo scored the Fijiana’s first every try in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and will be an added arsenal for Mies Pearls.

The 30 year old Olympian and tryscoring machine played 93 matches for Fijiana 7s on the World Sevens Series, with a total of 34 tries in her career.

She joins fellow Fijian Mateitoga Bogidraumainadave and Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua fullback Timaima Ravisa at the club.
