Fiji’s triumph marks their fourth championship title and a sweet revenge for the narrow 19-18 loss they suffered to Samoa in the previous year’s competition. This victory not only underscores Fiji’s dominance in the region but also ensures their second appearance in the Rugby World Cup, having made their debut in New Zealand in 2022.

The path to victory was not without challenges. Samoa, despite having played one less match due to the cancellation of their opening round against Papua New Guinea, proved to be formidable opponents. Their resilience and competitive spirit were evident throughout the tournament, making Fiji’s win even more commendable.

In the same tournament, Tonga secured the third place for the third consecutive year with an impressive 39-5 win over Papua New Guinea in the day’s opening match. This consistent performance highlights Tonga’s growing strength and competitiveness in women’s rugby within the region.

Fiji’s qualification as the ninth team for the upcoming World Cup is a testament to their hard work and dedication. Their journey and achievements inspire not only their nation but also the broader rugby community, showcasing the increasing talent and excitement in women’s rugby.

As Fiji prepares for the global stage once again, the anticipation and excitement build for what promises to be a thrilling 2025 Women’s Rugby World Cup.
