THE Telecom Fiji Warriors rugby team is keeping its fingers crossed the tropical depression will miss Fiji so it could out of the Nadi International Airport today.
The Lance Whippy-coached side is scheduled to fly out for the Pacific Rugby Cup campaign next week.
And despite, the tropical depression in place, the team management is confident the side will leave the country as scheduled.
"We're hoping the threat of the cyclone will miss us and the people of Fiji," team manager Joe Brown said.
"The team is ready to fly out but we will just wait for the weather to see how it goes."
Meanwhile, Brown said one player would join the team next week Tuesday.
"Everything is okay, the paper works is ready but only one player will join the team next week because of a bereavement in the family."
"We will not name the player because this is personal."
The side is expected to leave Nadi today.
