THE Fijiana side is slowly building up for the next leg of the Women's Sevens World Series that will be held in Guangzhou, China.

Team manager Selita Koroi said the players do their own training in the gym and training sessions during the week.

She said they only come together on certain Saturdays to train as a team and do skills sessions in the morning and scrimmaging in the afternoon.

"Last week we were fortunate to have Elenoa Kunatuba, the FRU development officer, taking the girls through a skills training sessions.

"On Saturday, the girls had a scrimmage session against the Fiji School of Medicine men's team who will be fielding a team at the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament."

Meanwhile, Koroi confirmed the Fijiana side would not compete in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament.

She said the players would play for their respective clubs in the event.

Thirty players are part of the extended training squad which will be trimmed to 16 after the Marist 7s.

Koroi said no player was nursing serious injury except for Talica Vodo who is recovering from pneumonia.
