THE Fiji National Rugby League is taking a serious approach to its Rugby League World Cup preparation.
In doing so, players who attend the Residents camp earlier this week were advised to prove their worth or they might face the axe.
FNRL organised a three-day camp to prepare 52 local players for the national trials tomorrow, whereby 30 players will be named in the Fiji Residents team.
FNRL general manager Tomi Finau said they wanted to take a different approach to the 2013 RLWC preparation.
"We have told the players to be serious about this camp. This camp is different from other camps as we want players to fully focus on the task ahead of them," he said.
"We are preparing for the world cup and every player that attended this camp will need to be very serious about it."
"There is no time for joking around, there is no time for dropping balls or committing simple mistakes, all players will need to be at their best and prove their worth."
Finau added a dedication service will be held at the Royal Fiji Military Force Church tonight. On Wednesday night Fiji Bati head coach Rick Stone arrived into the country to keep a close eye on the local players who are eager to be part of the international event.
Finau urged the public to turn out in numbers during the trials at 10am at the Suva Grammar School grounds tomorrow.
