Underdogs In Camp For Eels Battle

Underdogs Tuwalu Tigers have marched into camp as they prepare for tomorrow’s Premier Grade semifinal showdown against Nadi Eels at Churchill Park in Lautoka.

Development officer Suliasi Cakautabu confirmed the Tigers met at Draubota Village on Wednesday where they have started their preparation.

“It has been a big year for the Tigers,” he said.

“This year we revived the Navosa Zone as we joined the Vodafone Cup competition and now the Tigers are a step away from joining the Top 8 competition.”

Cakautabu said under the guidance of former rugby union stars Isoa Neivua, Sekove Leawere and Luke Navuwai they held their own against PUMA Davuilevu Knights in the quarterfinals last week.

“The Knights made the mistake of trying to take the Tigers head on instead of throwing the ball out wide. In their frustration they lost their cool but surprisingly Tigers kept their composure and played to win.”

Cakautabu said the Tigers are wary of the Eels as they have the experience and know what is needed to be done during pressure times.
