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.

The Digicel Cup Final will kick off at 3.30pm after the Under 20 Final between Nadroga and Tailevu at 1pm.
