The South Pacific nation of Vanuatu is the latest nation to announce their intention to enter a team in the 2021 Women’s Emerging Nations World Championship in England.
A participant in the Men’s tournament in 2018, Vanuatu has been steadily growing their Women’s program since late 2017, running multiple nine-a-side and thirteen-a-side competitions since.
The Vanuatu Rugby League announced their plans after board members, So’oletaua Motuliki and Ben Howard, met with British High Commissioner to Vanuatu, Her Excellency Karen Bell earlier today.
As part of the meeting the VRL outlined their plans for continuing to grow Rugby League throughout the Pacific Nation as well outline their ambitious plans for the upcoming Women’s Emerging Nations World Championship.
The Vanuatu Rugby League Women’s National team have not yet played any official or unofficial international matches.
