The Fiji Airways Fijiana Sev­ens team are physically, mentally and spiritually pre­pared to play in the 2018/19 HSBC Women’s World Sevens Series opening tournament on October 20-21 at Glendale in Colorado, USA.

This was confirmed to SUNsports yesterday by Fijiana 7s manager Di­vela Naucukidi after they attended their farewell church service at the Word Harvest Centre in Kinoya.

Naucukidi said they have high hopes that the side would be able to deliver the goods in all their games.

“With the service today one of the messages that will motivate the players in Colorado is the Bible verse from Psalms 103 which sig­nifies how consistent the players should be while on the field.

“The main focus is on our mission as a team especially during our three matches.”

Naucukidi said they would try their best in their group matches as they are placed in a tough pool.

“We’re placed with Canada, France and Ireland in our pool. The top seeded teams are Canada and France.

“Our pool matches will not be an easy one as most of the girls are from the fifteens team and to be ex­posed to the sevens game will not be easy. We are training for that and I believe that we will be able to deliver during game day.”

Pastor Kolini Boila encouraged the players to have faith in God.

“Nothing is impossible in the name of the Almighty,” he added.
