The Fiji Airways Fijiana team has left the country last night with a mission to win in the Rugby 7s World Cup in San Francisco later this month.
Coach Iliesa Tanivula says there has been a huge change in the player’s physical fitness.
“The response from the girls have been good and I guess at the back of everyone’s mind we know it’s the World Cup and we went through strength training through the hills of Wailoku and its good to go out there and we could see the physical change in their body.”
The Fijiana side will open its campaign against Spain on the 20th of this month.
Meanwhile, the Fiji men’s team is currently camping in Utah and the 13 member squad will be named on the 18th of this month.
Fiji opens its campaign against the winner of Qualifying Match 7, either Japan or Uruguay on the 21st of this month.
