THE Marist Seahawks maintained their winning streak in the Fiji Women's Rugby 15s competition with a 29-17 win over the Central Chiefs on Saturday.

This is their second win in as many matches and they now hold a good lead on the points table.

Fiji Women's Rugby Union president Paulini Tamatasasa said both teams had the services of Fijiana reps.

"The season has just begun and this was the second match of the competition," she said.

"Fijiana reps are representing their respective clubs since this is the 15s competition, the teams will progress slowly as the competition progresses."

Mystics Knights will play Eastern Eagles on Thursday.

Tamatasasa said teams in the Western Division were still having their sevens competition.

"We will pick two teams from the clubs in the Eastern Division and two from the clubs in the Western Division and have an East versus West match next week.

"We will travel to the West to have the matches there and we look forward to two good matches."

Meanwhile, the Get into Rugby program introduced in schools by the Women's Union and the Fiji Rugby Union's development unit would be put to the test this weekend.

"The schools would have a girls' team from the secondary school category and a mixed team from the primary schools category and would play in a tag rugby curtain raiser to the Fiji versus Italy Test match on Saturday.

"Secondary schools include Ballantine Memorial, Ratu Sukuna Memorial, Assemblies of God High, Suva Grammar and Gospel High.

"Primary schools include Samabula Primary, Vatuwaqa Primary, Mahatma Gandhi and Nuku District."
