Naitasiri retain same XVs for Cup finale

Padre Joji Rinakama has opted for consistency retaining almost the same starting line-up that upset Tailevu in one of the semifinals last week for Saturday’s Digicel Cup finale at at Lawaqa Park.

The only change made to the starting line-up is positional in the front row with the props with Vereisi Daku swapping numbers with Joeli Veitayaki.

Their could be a change in the backline with Jonetani Vetau bracketed beside Josateki Naisilisili at outside centre.

Naisilisili got injured last week with a broken finger, so Naitasiri have to assess whether he will be fit enough to play on Saturday.

Naitasiri last won the Digicel Cup in 2010.
