We have a lot of work to do: Rodu

Digicel National Women’s head coach Marika Rodu says the team has a lot of work to do and improvements to make before taking the field on the international arena.

Following the cancellation of the team camp due to COVID-19 restrictions, Rodu said the players will need to work extra hard when things return to normal.

“We had a lot of tasks and plans outlined which we could not go ahead with due to COVID-19 but then we have to make sure that when things resume, we get going on the field. We have a lot of things to work on that might take time.”

“A lot of areas need polishing in the team and the girls will need to start working on areas they lack. We have already mapped out what needs to be done right and that’s something we will be quick at when things get normal.”

“For now, I think that defending and attacking were the two major areas that we had planned to work around. There are other areas like our striking force; midfield and goal keeping that required some lesson on.”

“Well, that’s the plan now but as we move along with the training then I’m sure more technical and tactical areas will require more work to be done. But for now I believe it’s time for the players to rest before we head to the camp any time soon.”

Women extended squad: Merevesi Ofakimalino, Cema Nasau, Louisa Simmons, Veniana Ranadi, Adi Lagilevu, Cecilia Nainima, Sainiana Niubalavu, Luisa Tamanitoakula, Titilia Waqabaca, Jotivini Tabua, Sofi Diyalowai, Shayal Sindhika, Maria Veronika Avisaki Toro, Koleta Likuculacula, Lora Bukalidi, , Naomi Waqanidrola, Sekola Waqanidrola, Timaima Vuniyayawa, Karala Vakayaru Ledua Senisea, Varanisese Tuicakau, Milika Masei, Viniana Riwai, Seruwaia Vasuitoga, Melaia Vugona, Eseta Volavola and Akeneta Kulanikoro.
