SHE may be married with two children and working but it has not prevented her from representing the country at international level.
Vilisi Sukhu is the oldest player in the AFL Fiji Vonu women's squad that will compete in the AFL International Cup 2014 (IC14) in Australia next month.
She said the support of her family had enabled her to devote more time to the sport she had come to love.
"It's interesting and it's actually a combination of rugby, touch rugby and soccer which are three main sports that we play in Fiji," Sukhu said.
"My husband is very supportive of me and allows me time to train and play and I also have two kids and even though I am working, I am able to arrange someone to look after them when I am at work or playing."
Sukhu works as an assistant court officer and was able to get sporting leave to go to Australia for the competition.
The Fiji Vonu side will face Canada, USA 1 and 2 and defending champions The Islands.
She said she was looking forward to her first international sporting competition.
"It's the first time I will compete overseas but I am confident of a good outing."
