Heat takes toll on Fiji Warriors players

THE Fiji Warriors squad is feeling the heat during its training sessions in preparation for the upcoming Pacific Rugby Cup competition.

The hot weather condition in the Central Division has prompted the team to shift its afternoon training session to an hour ahead to minimise the effect of the heat.

Fiji Warriors manager Joseph Browne said the side had been undergoing tough training sessions regularly.

Yesterday, he said the players were exposed to physical training before assistant coach Eroni Vereivalu carried out the skills work.

"It's just too hot. We don't want to get the players dehydrated. We have been planning properly on the recovery after the training sessions.

"We took them to Waimanu (yesterday) after the training because it's cooler there. We drove them to Waimanu and got them to jump in the river."

Browne said the preparation was on track with the team focusing on getting the combination right before the end of this month.

Defending champions Fiji Warriors plays the Queensland Reds A in its opening PRC match in Brisbane on March 2.
