Namosi must score their first win in the Skipper Cup Premiership on Saturday.

And they must do it the hard way when they face Suva on Saturday.

The capital side is on six points after bonus win (5) over Malolo and a bonus loss (1) 26-28 over Nadroga on Saturday.

Defending HFC Bank Farebrother Challenge champions Namosi is on two points from two bonus losses.

The return of Swire Shipping Fijian Warriors skipper Mosese Voka and Verami Dikidikilati should boost Namosi while Peni Raidre and Fiji Airways Fijian 7s squad members Keponi Paul and Terio Tamani should add firepower to the capital side.
