“The team has been preparing well, ” Ledua said.

“We’ve been working very hard for the past two weeks focussing on our conditioning right from the first week and everything is perfect.”

Ledua said weather won’t be of any problem.

“We heard it is really cold in Uruguay but this won’t be any excuse.I have talked to the boys on how important this tour is and everyone is going to do their best.

“It is quite a challenge to lead a national team and I’m honoured.”

Telecom Fijian Warriors coach Senirusi Seruvakula confirmed Nemani Nagusa was dropped because he failed to join the team during  training.

“We have chosen the players who have been in the training squad and committed throughout,” Seruvakula said.

The team departs at 8.30am today.
