Set been out there, as a team we have been really uniting and gelling well, which is very good. “Our coaches have been fantastic in instilling discipline. “We’ve really stepped up in terms of where we were when we played against PNG.
“We know it’s going to be tough but we are ready to do the country proud and qualify for the 2017 Women Rugby World Cup.” The President said: “I have no doubt you will do well in Hong Kong. The Vodafone Flying Fijians did well on their European tour. Although they lost to the Barbarians and England, they played really well against Japan and maintained their world ranking in the top 10. “Coaches Seremaia Bai and Ro Alifereti Doviverata have come back to share their knowledge and prepare and develop you. There will be no easy match, but if you train and prepare yourself well, you will do well. We wish you luck and safe travel, look after one another, and I have no doubt that you will come back home victorious.” Coach Bai said taking the girls to a new environment and playing Hong Kong in their home ground will not be an issue. “The only thing we can control is ourselves, how we can prepare and how to come together as a team, those are the things that we can control,” Bai said. “We need to keep to what we know and stick to that and when we go there it will be nothing different. “We would probably need to adjust to the weather but apart from that we are expecting a tough game.” The Fijiana XV departs on Sunday for Hong Kong.
