THE Vodafone Fiji Bati under-19 team will fly to Australia today.

This is confirmed after its visa application for the players was approved yesterday.

Team manager Naisa Toko confirmed to Times Sport that all visa were approved.

"We have our visa now and we're ready to go," he said.

"This is the only thing left as the players are fully focused on the tour."

The side flies to Australia this morning.

Fiji junior Bati coach Meli Baledrokadroka said they had polished their moves with the team at training.

He said most of the players were playing the 13-man code for the first time.

"We've worked on our set moves, the phases of our games and making the players understand more of the game," he said.

"Some of them are new to the sport but we're ready for the tour."
