THE Telecom Fiji Warriors is back on track in its Pacific Rugby Cup title defence campaign.

The Lance Whippy-coached team scored a bonus point win in its second match after overcoming a previously unbeaten Western Force A 36-24 at the Ballymore Stadium in Brisbane, Australia last night.

The Warriors, which led 13-12 at the break, scored five tries in the important win.

Earlier, the Rupeni Nasiga-skippered side lost to Reds A 19-22 in its opening pool match last Sunday.

This win has put Fiji Warriors back in the hunt with a match against Junior Japan in the pool play on March 18.

However, the team will also play Waratahs A under-20s side this Friday and new inclusion Argentina Pampas XV on March 23 in Sydney.

Force A earlier defeated Reds A 29-23 before walloping Junior Japan 61-6 while Reds A hammered Junior Japan 81-7.

Fiji Warriors team manager Joseph Browne said the team played a better game last night.

He said the players improved on the areas that led to their loss against Reds A.

"It was a good win. We are still in the race and everyone is pleased with this victory," Browne said.

"The players improved on the areas that we lacked on in the previous game. They are confident and looking forward to our next match.

"We have put this game aside, it's already a history now and we are now focusing on the game this Friday."

Browne also thanked the supporters that came out in numbers to back the team.
