Campaign against ban on Tongan schoolgirls playing rugby gains momentum


Tonga’s education ministry put a ban on girls playing rugby and boxing at public schools because officials say it supposedly affects the worth and value of Tongan women.

“I am very upset as a sports person and a sports developer I’m deeply hurt as a Tongan woman that this banning has come about” said Auckland Vulcans girls coach, Caroline Matamua.
