This follows continued growth of Rugby in Oceania and in-line with the Constitutional reform during the 2018/2019 period.

Her professional experience within the sport medicine field has seen her join a number of National and Regional Boards in Sport and Medicine to continue to contribute to the growth of sports medicine within the region. Cathy’s achievements have seen her appointed as Chef de Mission for Team Fiji to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and appointed to World Rugby Council, for Oceania Rugby, in 2018, the first women to have held either position.
