Suva wary of upcoming opponents

By Kalesi Mele

The Suva rugby team will not take any of its upcoming opponents in the Digicel Cup lightly and will treat every match as a final.

Suva RU secretary Maika Waqa told FijiLive that whilst their competitors may not appear strong, the side would lose alot if they registered a loss in any of their remaining three matches.

“Our remaining games are very important because we know that Naitasiri and Lautoka can take the spots that we want, and we need to secure a spot in the semi, so losing is not an option.”

“The remaining teams are not strong but rating their performance s so far, we know they will bring their best because of the experiences they have been coming through,” Waqa said.

Suva last featured in the final of Digicel Cup in 2011 against Nadroga.

Waqa said the team was currently secure with no injuries suffered and has been preparing well for its clash against Nadi at Prince Charles today. The match commences at 3pm.

Suva Squad:
Manasa Saulo, Bill Veikoso, Sireli Temo, Savenaca Tabakanalagi, Napolioni Naulia, James Brown, Josefa Levula, Ilitomasi Nawalu, Aporosa Kenatale, Kaminieli Neiqisa, Maikeli Mocetadra, Leone Tabuarua, Osea Kolinisau, Saukuru, Iliesa Tora.

Reserves: Josaia Colati, Sisa Naqasima, Alipate Mateivelia, Samu Bola, Apenisa Nasilasila, Ben Koroi, Peni Vaciloa.
