THE Telecom Fiji Warriors side left the country yesterday with high hopes of retaining the Pacific Rugby Cup title.

The team went minus the unnamed player, who has been granted bereavement leave and will join the team later.

Team manager Joseph Browne said they needed the support of the public during the competition.

He said the inclusion of Argentina Pampas would make the competition tougher.

Meanwhile coach Lance Whippy has opted for experienced Rupeni Nasiga, Waisea Luveniyali and Nemani Nagusa to share the captaincy role during the tournament.

Fiji Warriors starts its PRC campaign against Reds A in Brisbane on March 2 followed by other matches against Force A (March 10), a Waratahs A under-20s side (March 14) and Junior Japan (March 18).

The team will play Argentina Pampas XV on March 23 in Sydney.
