More competition for Fijiana spot

Selecting the final Fijiana squad for the World Cup in New Zealand this year is even tougher now for Head Coach Senirusi Seruvakula after the side won the Oceania Championship yesterday.

Speaking after arriving with some members of the Rooster Chicken Fijiana 15s at the Nausori International Airport today, Seruvakula says
the team will take a two-week break before heading back into camp.

“It’s getting tougher and the girls that I pick are the best and the girls who have the right attitude, to go to the world cup. There is a lot of new girls in New Zealand, Australia and the girls that have been left out in the Oceania, and the girls on the tour. It is going to be tougher, the more it is tough the better it is for the coaches to select the best.”

The Fijiana will prepare for two matches lined up before the World Cup.
