Congratulations to our very own Alysia LeafuFakaosilea!

Canterbury Year 12 Graduate – Class of 2018… Now Australian Rugby 7s Squad Player!

Is it #TokyoTime? We will find out early July…

Coach John Manenti confirmed his Australian Women’s Rugby Sevens Squad back on Monday 21 June for the past weekend’s PacificAus Sport Oceania Sevens Tournament up in Townsville, which included Alysia LeafuFakaosilea amongst other upcoming stars Demi Hayes, Cassie Staples, Madison Ashby, Sariah Paki and Faith Nathan.

They are all pushing for Tokyo Olympics selection, with that squad set to be confirmed in early July.

“Our squad for the Oceania Tournament has a real mix of experience and youth, and I’m excited to see them play as a team,” Manenti said in a statement.

“We took a lot of learning out of our recent games against champions New Zealand, and we have been working to improve on these issues to play our own brand of Rugby.

“This tournament allows us to test some final combinations ahead of confirming our Olympic squad, while also giving other players a chance to make their claim for a spot on the plane to Tokyo.”
