Jack’s Nadi will carry the underdog tag when they face Nadroga in the Skipper Cup opener at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka on Saturday.

The Jetsetters have been training hard under new coach and former Flying Fijian star centre Savenaca Aria.

Nadi Rugby manager Lasaro Rabaka said, they are fielding a new set of players amidst the boycott of some senior players early this month.

“Preparation has been good,” he told SUNsports yesterday.

“There are things we cannot control like the movement of players. Choosing the new squad for the new season and of course there are things happening at Nadi Rugby.

“We are pretty much focused on the first game, we got a totally new bunch of players, who we are so excited about and who we want to work with this year.”

Rabaka added that they respect Nadroga who have been training  hard during the off-season.

“Of course the pressure is on us and we will go in as underdogs. At the moment we will work on the squad that we have from then on we will work on the many games that we have for the Skipper Cup.”

Rabaka has called on Nadi Rugby fans to come out and support the team.

The 23-member squad are to be announced tomorrow along with the team captain.
