THE Fiji Warriors team management is confident the side will be ready for 2014 Pacific Rugby Cup competition.

The 35-member squad joined the training camp in Suva yesterday to start its preparation for the competition which kicks off on February 24.

Fiji Warriors, which is the defending champions, will take on Samoa A, Tonga A, Japan A and Argentina Pampas XV along with the Super Rugby franchise development sides from Australia in this year's PRC competition.

Team manager Joseph Browne said they have enough time to jell the players and work out a formidable side for the competition.

He said the players that were part of the squad have been playing since last year.

"So it won't be too difficult to get them into shape. They have been playing consistently since last year and it's just the matter of jelling them together," Browne said.

Fiji Warriors will be coached by Tailevu mentor Lance Whippy and assisted by Eroni Vereivalu.

Browne said the players would be working on their strength and conditioning before focusing on the field work.

"We just seek people's blessing and support."
