The capital city side Suva are confident of putting up a good performance in the 2019 Vodafone Women’s Inter-district Championship (IDC) which starts today at Fiji FA Academy ground in Vatuwaqa.

They play Labasa in their first pool match at 3:30pm today, Rewa on Saturday and Tavua on Sunday. Both matches will be played at 1:30pm.

Team manager George Brown said preparations are on track as they are also assisted by national women’s head coach Marika Rodu.

“The team is currently training under former national rep William Lasaqa and myself.  “The girls are very dedicated and now they are focusing on their first game,” Brown said

“We also have Rodu assisting the side with their preparation and we’re fortunate to have him onboard.

“Rodu basically worked on the defence and other aspects of the game and he was quiet influential.

“We have one national rep in Viniana Riwai and nine newcomers who have been shortlisted to play at the Pacific Games in July.

“We looking forward to a great weekend.”
