HEAVY rain experienced in the Northern Division is not helping Savusavu as they prepare for this weekend's opening round of the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League in Labasa.
Savusavu FA president Gopendra Narayan said the continuous rain in the north had disrupted the team's training sessions.
Narayan said the bad weather was not helping the Savusavu coaching staff members as they had been trying to get all players to train.
"It's just unfortunate that we've continued to experience rain here in Savusavu and it's not helping our preparations for this weekend's matches," Narayan said.
"We just hope that the weather improves from tomorrow (today) so we can at least have three days of training before the first game on Saturday.
"We are all looking forward to the start of the new season and hopefully we can start on a good note this weekend," Narayan said.
Narayan said they had not named a captain for the season but would select the skipper for the first match after they've had some training run.
Savusavu will play Rewa in the opening game at Subrail Park on Saturday before they face Navua on Sunday.
The other games to be played will be between Labasa and Navua on Saturday and Labasa versus Rewa on Sunday.
