A torrid encounter is expect­ed when INKK Fiji Rugby Farebrother-Sullivan Tro­phy winners Jack’s Nadi hosts challengers Nadroga at Prince Charles Park, on Saturday.

This was the view of former Nadi Rugby Union secretary Jeff Tama­ta, who said Nadi and Nadroga were the only two teams in the country that have won the Farebrother Tro­phy more than any other provincial teams.

The last Farebrother encounter between the two sides was at the same venue in 2019, where Nadroga convincingly won 20-3, in front of a capacity crowd.

“Both teams have a relatively young squad with few prominent old warhorses in their midst,” Tamata said.

In the last three Skipper games this year, both teams won its respec­tive games and are in the top three positions in the latest points table.

Nadi leads with 47 points, ahead of Naitasiri (38) and Nadroga (34).

“Both teams have a good set of as­sistant coaches.

“Both teams are vanua-based with lots of supporters. But history fa­vours the mighty Stallions,” Tama­ta said.
