Fiji Airways Fijiana XV loosie forward Laisa Taga is one of our frontline heroes. Taga is a nurse by profession and is on one of the teams tackling the COVID – 19 crisis.

She spoke to FRU Media, on how she is handling work and training as she eyes to play in next year’s Women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

FRU: How’s everything been for you in the past few weeks?

TAGA: Well, it’s been great actually just longer working hours. That is 12-hour shifts so basically if I’m doing morning by the time I knock-off it’s during curfew hours, so my life has simply been around home and work.

FRU: How are you maintaining your fitness?

TAGA: To be really honest I work out on my days off mostly running. It can an be hill runs or just a circuit.

If I’m on night shift, which starts at 7pm to 7am, I try to do some sort of physical activity before that time.

FRU: What are some new things you’ve been trying out?

TAGA: Not much actually because I work 12 hours per day. On my days off I get to help out more at home

FRU: What do you usually do to keep you entertained?

TAGA: I love to watch Netflix, train and I’m a big foodie, so yes eating.

FRU: Any book you’re enjoying right now?

TAGA: That would be the Bible.

FRU: Movies or Series you’re been watching?

TAGA: Yes binging on Legacies. Bloodshot, Riverdale, Coffee and Kareem and many more.

FRU: What’s your best social media challenge right now?

TAGA: My best challenge would be the push-ups, I do it but I don’t like filming it.

FRU: How does it feel to be away from the field and your teammates?

TAGA: Oh it’s hard. I miss my team-mates and running on the field because it’s not only a sport but it helps keep me relieved from stress as well.

It’s the best time to do personal work on for instance speed endurance diet

FRU: First thing you’ll do when all this is over?

TAGA: First thing I would do is attend a team training session or have a feed with my team mates.
