Five women representing Vanuatu Rugby were part of the Principles of Leadership and Management, aw regional course facilitated by Oceania Rugby last night.

With this month being the Women’s Rugby month , Oceania Rugby has initiated the course which will run through the whole five weeks.

In this course, women are reminded of their role as leaders of a sports federation and managing operation. It aims to inspire more women and girls to play and watch the sport by showcasing our belief that women’s rugby is the ultimate team sport on and off the pitch and how, through the power of togetherness, a team is greater than the sum of its parts.

Vanuatu alongside Tonga, Tuvalu, Samoa, Papua New Guinea, American Samoa and Solomon Islands were part of last night’s session.

World Rugby’s aim by 2025, rugby will be a global leader in sport, where women involved in rugby have equity on and off the field, are reflected in all strategy, plans and structures, making highly valued contributions to participation, performance, leadership and investment in the global game of rugby.
