Fijiana 7s players to improve fitness level

THE Fijiana 7s team management is expecting improvement in the fitness levels of the players.

The players based in Suva and the Central Division had their fitness test at the HPU Gym in Suva yesterday and team manager Selita Koroi said 17 girls attended the test.

"We just finished a six-week block program for power and strength," she said.

"So this result (from this fitness test) we will compare with the results from the first fitness test and to get an idea of how far they have progressed."

Most of the players have been representing their respective clubs in the Fiji Women's Rugby Union 15s competition that started a few weeks ago.

"Definitely hoping for an improvement in their fitness since they have been playing.

"And then we have another program that starts on Monday and we still have two months to go in our whole off-season training program."

Meanwhile, a United States-based player also attended the trials.

"She has been here for more than a month now and she has declared her interest to play for Fiji."
