Lefau-Fakaosilea, who will wear the No.13 jersey, is one of the most exciting prospects in women’s rugby, having starred for Queensland in Super W as well as training with the Australian sevens side in the hope of being selected for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

“The young girls are making people work hard for their spot. They’re showing myself and a few other senior girls a thing or two, which is really helpful. They’re adding a lot of value to the team.”

“We know we’ve got New Zealand coming up but we’re just focusing on what need to do at the moment against Japan,” Treherne said. “They are a very physical team. They apply a lot of pressure to our attacking line and are also very well trained over the rucks. We have to be careful in our breakdowns and securing ball so we can get clean ball to the backs.”

Treherne, who is fully contracted with the Australian sevens squad, has been working hard on her speed and hopes to use it to full advantage on Saturday.

“They’ve given me the confidence to back myself with ball in hand and able to do my job in defence well enough and hopefully that helps the team balance,” Treherne said.

Eva Karpani, Shannon Mato, Arabella McKenzie and Lori Cramer are also in line to make their debuts off the bench.
