Brisbane – 30 May 2024 Manusina XV’s Sui Pauaraisa attended an independent Disciplinary Committee hearing for an offence contrary to Law 9.13 (dangerous tackling) in Manusina XV’s game against Lofa XV on 29 May 2024 at the Oceania Rugby Women’s Championships.

The independent Disciplinary Committee was chaired by Helen Morgan (New Zealand).
