THE Rupeni Nasiga-captained Fiji Warriors side will face an uphill battle against the Force A in their second match of the Pacific Rugby Cup competition.

Last Monday, the Force thumped Junior Japan 61-6 which should be ringing alarm bells for Nasiga and his troops that a strong gale force wind awaits them on Monday in Brisbane.

The Force earlier beat Reds A 29-23 in their opening game.

The Telecom-sponsored Fiji Warriors side stumbled against the Reds over the weekend 22-19 in Brisbane, a result the team management said was "an outcome of taking the wrong options".

Earlier this week, team manager Joe Browne highlighted areas which the needed work prior to the game against the Force.

He said it was a close encounter against the Reds and they could not afford to stumble against the Force.

"The main weakness in the team is decision-making and we will be working on that in the lead-up to our second match," he said after the match against the Reds.

He said the boys played well against the Reds, however, they needed to lift their performance to match the strong gale from the Force.

The Fiji Warriors are the defending champions of the Pacific Rugby title.
