"We are trying to finish off the competition. The focus is also on the Vanua Challenge. The fitness level of the players is on par.
"The coaches have been working on the combinations. From Monday the squad training will resume. We will be fielding two men's teams and one women's team in the Vanua Challenge.
"The aim is to do the best in the tournament in Suva. The interest in the sport is high and we have 17 teams."
