Fetu Samoa Team

 

A lead up game on August 30 between the Jillaroos and Patrons XIII at Marist Stadium in Samoa will be a exciting teaser to the test match.

 

Eight players are former Kiwi Ferns with experience in both codes of Rugby Union and League with ages ranging from 19 years to 41 years. Tammi Wilson another ex Kiwi Fern is the team physio.

Captain Luisa Avaiki, former Kiwi Fern and one of the most experienced senior players is looking forward to the clash.

"We want to come away with a win.  It’s a good chance for our younger up and coming players to experience Women’s rugby league at an international level” says Avaiki.

With the Rugby World Cup opening next month, Rugby is still the main sport in Samoa. “We want to develop, rebuild and grow Women’s rugby league for Samoa" says Avaiki.   “We’re putting something solid in place now to build towards the Rugby League World Cup in 2013”

Fetu Samoa will be in Samoa during Samoa's Teuila Festival and the Test Match is being advertised as a major attraction during this annual event.
