THE Fiji under 16 side departed this morning for Australia confident of a good outing in the Land Down Under.

Head coach Masi Saqanavere said the side had the potential to improve from last year’s outing with the aim of reaching the final.

He said winning the competition would be a bonus for his team.

Saqanavere said the players had combined at training after the six weeks of preparation.

“These players come from different schools and we have been using the past weeks to work on their combination,” he said.

“Last year we won only one game and the target is to do well this year.”

The side will play three pool games before advancing to the elimination stages.
