THE International Rugby Board (IRB) Get Into Rugby Programme has been a hit with schools around the country.
Fiji Women's Rugby Union president Paulini Tamatasasa with the help of Fijiana 7s reps has been introducing rugby to schools where the sport has never been played before.
As part of the program, schools were also given rugby balls and equipments to help them with the development of the sport.
"Suva Grammar School, Ballentine Memorial School, Ratu Sukuna Memorial School, Gospel High School and Cathedral Secondary School are some of the schools in which the girls were taught the sport," Tamatasasa said.
"Mahatma Gandhi, Vatuwaqa Primary, and Nuku District were some of the schools in which tag rugby was introduced to both the girls and the boys.
"Deenbandoo Primary School and Fiji LDS Church College were the most recent schools and the sport has been a hit with the girls from LDS."
Fiji LDS Church College principal Michael Larthew said they had seen girls take up interest in rugby and very soon they could have a competitive team.
"It's brand new for the ladies here but it's a hit and we can see that the interest is there," he said.
