The Fiji's women's sevens coach says her team's success is attracting more support for women's rugby in the country.

Elenoa Kunatuba says she does not believe there is enough support for women's rugby around the world but believes it is improving.

She says more people in Fiji are getting behind its women's sevens team after it booked a place in the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens tournament.

"Ever since we won the Pacific gold medal last year, people are beginning to change their mindset. And now that we've won the Asian qualifier and we're going to the World Cup, everybody is slowly changing their mindset that women's rugby is getting better, especially in the code of sevens."

Elenoa Kunatuba says it is a big boost for her team to be invited to World Cup Sevens series.
