The Northland rugby team aims to do its best in the second round of the HFC Bank Farebrother Challenge against reigning champs BLK Nadroga at Lawaqa Park tomorrow.

Northland will go in as underdogs but determined to provide Nadroga a good game.

Team captain Filimoni Malorua says they believe that through their gutsy performance and self-belief would be able to produce positive results.

“Nadroga is a tough team but the boys have been preparing well and we will provide a good challenge,”team captain Filimoni Malorua said.

“They are the best team as they are the champions and all challengers have to step up if they are to provide a good fight.”

The 30-year old Naitutu, Tailevu native was a member of the Northland team which won the silverware in 2008 under the guidance of head coach Watisoni Ratulevu.

And with the same mentor guiding the side again, they hope to achieve the same feat after five years.

“We will do our best for our tikina (districts) and the people of Northland,”Malorua said.

The veterans in the team are Malorua, Sireli Ledua, Maikeli Vasole, Uraia Vecenadavui, Norani Vunakece and Atu Turagaiviu.

“We have a lot of young players but we have been blending in well this week,” he said.

The side respects the Stallions but will not leave any stone unturned tomorrow at 3pm.

Sireli Ledua, Lemeki Tuyawa, Banuve Dretiverata, Mitieli Bose, Josh Seru, Osea Turagarua, Sakiusa Bose, Filimoni Malorua (captain).  Jo Tukana, Waisake Bole, Vilive Marakiwai, Atunaisa Turagaiviu,  Maikeli Vasole, Paula Balekana, Vaulo Rokotuiveikau
