Sapias happy

OCEANIA Rugby president Richard Sapias is happy wth the return of investments the union made with World Rugby in growing women's rugby in the region.

"This is reflected in the increased number of women's teams participating in the Oceania Sevens, and in recent changes to our strategic planning and partnerships such as with United Nations (UN) Women as we work together towards equality on the field," Sapias said.

Ocenia Rugby made their changes starting from the top.

It also highlighted that the membership approved back in 2016 the introduction of two new independent appointed board positions.

The statement said both positions, the Oceania Rugby Women's director Cathy Wong (Fiji) and Oceania Rugby Independent director Oceania Rugby Aloma Johannsson (Tonga) were currently filled by Pacific Island Women.

"Wong and Aloma are integral to making key decisions for regional rugby; an equal opportunity approach to recruitment to achieve gender equality."
