THE Fiji Warriors will not be taking its oppositions lightly after starting its Pacific Rugby Cup title defence on a losing note last weekend.

The Telecom Fiji-sponsored Warriors side lost narrowly 19-22 to the Reds A on Sunday.

However, they're optimistic of a good outing next week at Brisbane.

Team manager Joe Brown admitted his troops could have walked away victorious against the Reds.

Brown said his troops had regrouped and were ready to face the next hurdle ahead.

Skipper and towering Nadroga utility forward Rupeni Nasiga will have a tough challenge in leading his side to defend the title which they won in the past four years.

The Lance Whippy-coached side plays the New South Wales under-20 in Brisbane before taking on Junior Japan at Bond University on the Gold Coast.

The side plays the Argentina Pampas XV in Sydney in its final match on March 18.
