“Moses is no stranger to Fiji Rugby or to our players. He has been part of our system for quite some time for both the women’s and men’s national teams.”

“We are excited to take this first step towards a full-time professional programme for our elite women’s players.”

“They’ll start the year participating in Super W under the Drua and most are expected to transition to national duties, playing in various Tests and tournaments like the Oceania qualifiers.

“Under our relationship agreement with the Fijian Drua, the key staff and players will
have a central contract with both entities to cover the entire playing year – offering
professional career opportunities for our women for the first time ever.”

Rauluni has played 43 Tests for the Flying Fijians and was captain of the team to the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
