FIJI Warriors coach Lance Whippy had the opportunity to test his combination during a scrimmaging session at Bidesi Park in Suva yesterday.

Whippy divided his 35-member squad into two teams to play each other and used the match to identify the weak links in the combination.

The national side starts its Pacific Rugby Cup title defence campaign on March 2 against Reds A in Brisbane, Australia.

The team leaves the country next week.

Fiji Warriors manager Joseph Browne said they were impressed with the improvements in the players.

He said they were gradually improving in their performance and teamwork.

"First half was not so good in terms of performance, it was bit rusty.

"The second half was well organised and the players played a better game."

Coach Whippy was to decide on his final 30-member team last night.

Browne said the team that would be named today "will be the best team available for this tournament".

Today the players will undergo rehab before doing some technical work in the afternoon training session.
