The HFC Bank Bainimarama Shield champions Tailevu know it will be an uphill climb at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori today.

And they have nothing to lose when they face HFC Bank Farebrother Trophy cham­pion

They know the enormity of the task after the Highlanders stunned Nadroga in a clin­ical display winning 26-17 last week.

Team manager Levani Matea said they will need to front up against the Highland­ers.

“This is the last challenge of the season and there is no better team to play and gauge our strength than the defending champions,” Matea said

In their bid to keep the coveted silverware at Navuso Village, Naitasiri have named a strong team.

It’s almost the same team that dismantled Nadroga in all facets of play last week.

“We have nothing to lose. We will take part in the 2019 Skipper Cup Premiership and the game will be a good build up and we need to move up another level,”Matea said.

He applauds supporters who have been backing the side throughout and urge them to turn up on Saturday at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori. Game kicksoff at 3pm
