THE Fiji Airways Fijiana XVs are looking forward to the battle against Hong Kong in the Asia Pacific Womens Championship which will be held at Churchill Park on Friday.

Fijiana XVs head coach Ro Alifereti Doviverata expects a tough match on Friday but he said the girls have been impressive during the training runs so far.

“The girls came from different teams so it took a bit of time to try and gel them together plus getting a structure for them to follow through-out the session,”  Ro Dovi said.

“The progress from the girls during training has been good, still a lot of things to learn for the girls, some of them are new to what we want to do but we’re progressing.”

“We will focus on our structure which we want to execute on the field and we’ve got a forward pack that we’ll need to utilize so we can get clean balls for the backs to work on”  he said.

Fijiana will take on Hong Kong 4pm in their first match at Churchill Park in Lautoka on Friday.

On Tuesday, Hong Kong faces Samoa at the same venue and in the final match of the Asia Pacific Championship, the Fiji Airways Fijiana XVs will take on Samoa at 4pm in Lautoka Saturday week
