Samu Bola to lead Suva against Nadroga

Suva have named their 22-match-day squad with loosie Samu Bola, 29, to lead as captain in their Farebrother-Sullivan Cup challenge match against holders Nadroga at Lautoka’s Churchill Park tomorrow.

He will be assisted by Josaia Lotawa who runs in at outside centre.

The Capital City side has also named a powerful front row with Vesi Rarawa, Bill Veikoso and Manasa Saulo, all of whom have been included in Inoke Male’s 36-member November Europe Tour, in expectation of a brutal forwards battle on the Lautoka pitch Saturday.

In the backline, the Highlanders have injected youth and pace hoping they would outrun the old heads of Nadroga.

Nadroga had announced their squad earlier in the week with nine changes to the squad that won 32-14 over Nadi in the third challenge last weekend at Lawaqa Park.

The match, which is the fourth in the 2012 Series, is set for a 3pm kick-off.
