Warriors ready to defend title

THE Telecom Fiji Warriors team in Australia for the 2014 Pacific Rugby Cup competition is asking those affected by the flood to remain faithful.

Many living in the low-lying areas of the Central and Eastern divisions suffered the brunt of the heavy downpour this week.

Fiji Warriors team manager Joseph Browne said they would do their best in the competition in the bid to retain the title.

"To the people of Fiji in this time of inclement weather, just hang in there and pray for the best," Browne said.

"Life is not always gloomy. At the end of any dark tunnel there is always light.

"God works in mysterious ways, heads up and stay focussed on the positives in life."

The Lance Whippy-coached Warriors will take on Reds A in its opening PRC match tomorrow 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 new inclusion Argentina Pampas XV on March 23 in Sydney.

Browne said the team had settled in well after arriving into Brisbane on Thursday.

He said the coaches were working on the recovery of the players and the other aspects of the play.

Browne said they were also overwhelmed by the support they have received so far in Australia.

"We had a full blow out (session) to get rid of travel fatigue. This was followed by line-out work. Lotu and dinner followed soon after. Players were all in bed by 10pm.

"We are focused and looking forward to the clash against the Reds A on Sunday (tomorrow). The support been given here in Australia is excellent."

The PRC competition also has Tonga A and Samoa A teams competing.
