Being first timers in a Digicel Cup semifinal and playing the defending champions in what is seen as a baptism of fire for most of his players, Namosi coach, Timoci Wainiqolo, says it’s a good experience.
The Outrigger on the Lagoon Nadroga was too good for the visitors winning 35-3.
“Most of our players are new to the Digicel Cup comp but I’m thankful for a good game,” Wainiqolo said.
Having national 7s reps Setefano Cakau, Joji Raqamate, Lepani Botia and veteran Sailosi Naiteqe with Apakuki Vuaviri in the Namosi team still couldn’t help the highlanders from playing a similar game to how they played in the round robin competition.
“We have learnt a lot especially winning the contest upfront.
“We knew Nadroga was going to come out hard in the forwards and use their backline well but we couldn’t match them,” Wainiqolo said.
“It is definitely a good build up for us as we look forward to prepare for the Farebrother-Sullivan challenge.”
