The Ba women’s team are looking forward to meet Labasa once the green light is given for the Babasiga players to travel to Viti Levu.

Ba women’s coach, Charlene Lockington said the North players were always a tough opponent.

Ba at the meantime is on top of the women’s points table after they thrashed Rewa, 4-0, at the ANZ Stadium last Sunday.

Ba currently leads with 15 points while Labasa and Rewa are both six points behind.

“We will play against Labasa as soon as they can come to Viti Levu and it should be a good outing with them as well,” Lockington said.

“Labasa is always in the finals with Ba, they are always tough and it’s good to have tough competitions.

“We respect Labasa as they always give us a good game.

“When you play teams that aren’t really fully prepared and does not have the experience it can be kind of boring,” she added.

With six months of no game time, she indicated there was a lot of work to do.

“Fitness level is not up to our expectations.

“The players are in camp and they are taking advantage of the availability of the technical director but they need to put in extra effort for their fitness to improve.

“We really did not have enough time with the girls, as they were in camp but otherwise the onus on the players.”
