THE Fiji Women's Rugby Union (FWRU) will be hosting the inaugural East versus West 15s competition in Sigatoka this Saturday.

This is in line with the Fiji Rugby Union's development for women's rugby in the country.

FWRU president Paulini Tamatasasa said they would have two matches starting at 11am at the Fiji Sports Council ground in Lawaqa.

She said the East and West had five clubs each competing every weekend.

Tamatasasa said on Saturday, both divisions would field two teams each.

"This is the first time for West to have a 15s competition of their own. We cannot underestimate them because they have some Fijiana players from Nadi and some senior players from Lautoka as well.

"Nadroga is a top team in our 7s competition and some of the girls are part of the academy in Nadroga. It will be an interesting contest."

Tamatasasa said they wanted to focus on other codes alongside 7s to help in the development of the sport in the country.
