Following a stellar year in Canberra, Kolora Lomani of the Safeguard Global ACT Brumbies Super Rugby Women's side has been selected to take part in Fiji's Women's 7's Olympic campaign in Paris.

Featuring on the wing before transitioning to scrumhalf, the Fijian product showed her rugby prowess and skill at every position she played and will undoubtedly be a strong asset to her team as they go for gold.

Lomani joined the Brumbies in 2024 and featured in all six of the sides matches, becoming a regular starter for the club as she showcased her skills for Fijian 7's.

Lomani will add to an already existenting Brumbies presence in the squad with ex-Brumby Talei Qalo Wilson also in the side.

The Brumbies Head of Women's Rugby & Pathways James Erwin said "this selection is a representation of her strong performances through Super Rugby Women's in 2024."

"She is an incredibly hardworking individual and her rapid progression through all levels of our Women's program is a testament to her skillset, I am proud to see that Kolora is getting the recognition and opportunities that she truly deserves."

"I can't wait to watch her in Paris and I wish her all the best for the upcoming Olympic Games."
