FIJI Rugby Union High Performance Unit fitness training officials of Suva are impressed with the response from members of national teams who have been training there during the festive season.

Players from the Fiji 7s side, Fijiana 7s, Fiji Warriors and Fiji U20 are training at the HPU Gym.

Training had been simmered down to accommodate the festive season but will resume fulltime from next week.

Fitness trainer Nacanieli Cawanibuka said he was impressed by the commitment of the Fiji U20 reps.

"Response in training has been encouraging, especially the U20 training squad players," he said.

"Their commitment to the DTE (Daily Training Environment) has been superb."

However, he added the Fiji U20 players still have a lot of work to do before they compete in the International Rugby Board Junior World Championship in New Zealand in July.

"There are only five months before the JWC, still a lot of room for improvement and hard work to be done."
