The Koli Sewabu coached-Naitasiri rugby team an­ticipates a physical battle against Jack’s Nadi in the third round of Skipper Cup Premiership at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori on Saturday

Naitasiri defeated Rewa 22-15 in the second round last Saturday.

Sewabu said preparations’ on track for the unbeaten highlanders who edged Namosi 26-24 in the first round.

“Rewa really exposed us last week and we need to get it right as Nadi will be physical,” he said

“The key for us is for the boys to stick to the game plan devised by the coaching panel.

“There are a lot of areas that we need to work on as a few of the players are new to our system and environment.

“Nadi has a bigger forward pack so we should expect a physical and tough gamed

“Good defence win games and we are working hard to achieve our goal this year.”

Malolo vs Rewa

Malolo aims to lift their perfor­mance in the third round of the Skipper Cup Premiership against Rewa at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nau­sori tomorrow.

Malolo Rugby secretary Viliame Naitau said the match against Rewa will be tough.

Malolo beat Namosi and Rewa lost to Naitasiri in round two.

“Our preparation has moved to another level. Rewa is not an easy team and we respect them,” Naitau said

“After last week’s win against Na­mosi, we want to move up a notch.

Naitau encourages all Malolo supporters in Suva and Nausori to come down to Ratu Cakobau Park on Friday to cheer for the team.
