Losses not a good sign says Bai

Tailevu rugby coach Seremai Bai expressed his concerns saying two early losses are not a good sign for the side in the Skipper Provincial Cup competition.

Bai says his backline needs a good workover before the resumption of the competition against Nadroga.

“Two losses is not a good indication towards the team because we had played according to the plan we had mapped out earlier of the competition yet we lost. There are a lot of things that need to be done starting from our forwards' pack to the last line.”

“We have a mixed side and most of these players experienced Skipper last year but we still lack in some places. The two losses are a lesson for us and the players have been informed of their mistakes and how they can overcome them.”

The former Eastern Saints coach also mentioned that this is the best time for their injured players to recover before the match against Nadroga.

“Some of our players sustained an injury in the last two matches and this is their recovery period. The injured players have been identified and we also received an update of their injuries. Most of the injuries were minor and we will have the full squad returning against Nadroga.”

“Nadroga is a professional team and we want to beat them. They are unbeaten and proved smart against Suva and Namosi but we will go slow and steady. We can’t afford to make any mistakes against them because they will try to take advantage of our errors.”

Tailevu will face Nadroga in round three of the competition on its resumption.
