Warriors title defence on track

THE Telecom Fiji Warriors continues to make significant progress towards the Pacific Rugby Cup title defence.

The side defeated Waratahs under-20 49-26 in their game in Brisbane, Australia, on Friday night.

Fiji led 27-0 at the break and scored seven tries in the bonus point win.

Team manager Joseph Browne was happy with the win but said the game exposed some weak links in the side.

The Lance Whippy-coached Warriors will play Junior Japan on Tuesday.

"They bounced back in the last quarter of the match. Our defence and playing for the full 80 minutes are the areas we need to work on before taking on the Japanese," Browne said.

Browne also said fly-half Waisea Luveniyali suffered a torn ligament and was likely to be ruled out of the reminder of the tournament.

"We are trying to get one of the players who reside in Australia and have been in the extended squad as a replacement.

"We looking forward to our next game and we ask the blessing of the vanua."
