Port Vila win big against Ifira in Women’s Premiership

The Port Vila Powerhouse Women’s team put on a dominant performance against the Ifira Blackbirds in Saturday’s Port Vila Rugby League Women’s Premiership.

Taking place at the Mele Fields, one of the foundation Women’s Rugby League teams in the Pacific nation, the Powerhouse were simply too strong for the new Blackbirds team running out 62 – 0 winners in the 13-a-side clash.

The Powerhouse and Blackbirds are two of six Women’s Rugby League sides in Vanuatu, with the Mele Eels, Vanuatu Mobile Forces Blue Machine, Pango Green Birds and Uluveou Sea Lions also running teams.

In the Men’s Nines competition the Mele Eels defeated the Pango Green Birds 10 – 8 in a tight contest before the Port Vila Powerhouse and Ifira Blackbirds fought out a 12 – all draw.
