Tough Police prop Viliame Bonavuku is going to captain Macuata when they face BLK Nadroga in the HFC Bank Farebrother Trophy Challenge at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka tomorrow.

Macuata Rugby Union secretary Ropate Rakadi said they don’t have any big names in their team but are going to make use of every opportunity that comes their way.

“This is an opportunity for our players to show what they have got,” he said.

Rakadi called on all their fans in Viti Levu to be at Lawaqa Park in their traditional colours of white and red.

The Northerners face a mammoth task of trying to contain a heavy Nadroga pack as they are led by experienced players like flanker Rupeni Nasiga, Iliesa Ratuva, Nemani Nagusa, Jonetani Ralulu, Joeli Lutumailagi and Apisalome Waqatabu.

Nadroga Rugby Union president Tiko Matawalu has called on rugby fans to come out in full force and cheer on their teams.

“The Nadroga team is injury free at the moment and we hope to retain the silverware,” he added.
