The Melea Salusalu-captained BLK Nadroga women aim to win the 2018 Skipper Cup Premiership title

The side plays Nadi which is made up mostly of the Nadi Blazers play­ers.

“Our aim is to win the Skipper Cup women division,”Coach Akeai Nainoca said.

“We just want to follow what our Stallions have done over the years by making Nadroga the rugby prov­ince of Fiji.

“We have 22 players who have been preparing and camping and we thank Nadroga Rugby Union for their support.”

Nainoca acknowledges sponsors

Nainoca thanked the Fiji Rugby Union and major sponsor CJ Patel for involving women in the Skipper Cup competition.

“We fully support the idea for the participation of women to be part of the Skipper Cup programme. This is the only way forward for women and we are thankful for that as it has been long overdue,” he said.

Skipper Salusalu will be assisted by prominent players like Waini­kiti Deku, Sovaia Daunivutia, La­nieta Vateqe and Melesiu Naitoko.

The teams clash 10am at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on Saturday.
