Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team will have three days to acclimatize themselves in the United States before the 2018/19 Women’s 7s series opener kicks off at Glendale on Saturday.
Interim coach Alifereti Doviverata says it is important for the players to familiarize with the weather in the US so that they should not be affected on game day.
He says they will need to have the competitiveness to play against the big guns in the tournament.
“We’re flying tonight and we will have enough time to adjust to the weather in the States. This is important for us so that the girls can familiarize themselves with the weather pattern there so that come game day we’re ready to play.”
The women’s side leaves for the States at 9pm tonight.
Fiji plays Canada in its first pool match at 5am Saturday and meets France at 7.36am and will then battle Ireland at 9.58am.
The finals will be held on Sunday.
