THE Fijiana 7s side kicked off their preparations for the 2014 season with a fitness test at the HPU Gym in Suva last Saturday.

Team manager Selita Koroi said 20 of the 30 girls named attended the test.

She said the players from Lautoka failed to attend the test but they would try to arrange one for them soon.

"This is the first step this year for the preparations for the China leg of the IRB Women's Sevens World Series," Koroi said.

"The fitness test is to gauge whether the players did their off-season training or no and where they stand in terms of fitness right now.

"The girls from Lautoka could not make it because of miscommunication but we hope to get them tested as well as soon as possible."

She said national coach Timoci Wainiqolo and the trainers would come up with the best training program after looking at the results of the fitness test.

"We need to keep monitoring these girls and give them the appropriate training program so that they are physically fit well before the tournament.

"They need to be consistent and honest with their training so that they keep up with the training program."
