Telecom Fijiana captain Priscilla Siata says the team is ready for the challenge at the 2015 Brazil 7s this weekend.

Siata made the comment after the 12 players were named for the second leg of the HSBC Women’s Sevens World Series.

The Vagadaci, Ovalau, Lomaiviti lady was also confident in the abilities of the incoming squad members who had missed out the previous leg in Dubai.

“For the new girls in the team, they are training very well and they’re adapting well to the environment.”

Looking ahead to the competition to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Siata felt the team would easily settle into play.

“For us old experienced players, it’s not the first time for us to run in the field. But, for the new girls, I’m sure it’s going to be a big experience for them.

“We’ve already met Australia, Brazil and China so this will be the second time we will be meeting them and we’re prepared for that.”

Siata called on the support of the public considering the team would be travelling to Brazil for the first time. “I just want to ask for their prayers and support.”
