Tour for Fiji AFL

THE AFL Fiji Vonu Women's squad that will compete in the AFL International Cup 2014 (IC14) in Australia next month is almost ready.

The tournament will be played from August 10 to 24 and team coach Maxwell Wolfgramm said they were gearing up well.

He said the side had been training for a few weeks now and still had some areas to polish up on before they depart on August 7.

"This is the first international competition for these girls and they are almost ready for the challenge," Wolfgramm said.

"We have been having games apart from training so we are well aware of the areas we need improvement in.

"We still have time before we depart and so we will polish up on those areas."

The Fiji Vonu side will face Canada, USA 1 and 2 and defending champions The Islands.

"We face The Islands in our first match and that should be a tough game.

"We play Tonga in a warm-up game when we get there so that should be a good build up for us."
