Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer Radrodro Tabualevu believes it will be a tough game between Jack’s Nadi and Tacirua Transport Naitasiri in the Skipper Cup semifinal tomorrow.

Tabualevu said the stakes were even higher with the impending final and the first Farebrother-Sullivan Challenge the following week.

“It should be a big one,”Tabualevu said.

“Between Naitasiri and Nadi, it’s difficult to pick,” Tabualevu said.

“I think the interesting thing that is coming out of that is the week after is finals and the week after that is the first Farebrother challenge.

“If Naitasiri was to win, they’ll go into a double-header. The information we’re getting is the teams are getting geared up. They are keen to take out the prizemoney. Nadroga is a good venue so it’s a good build-up to the final.”

Meanwhile, Jack’s Nadi team manager Noa Neivalu earlier told SUNsports that getting the basics right was important.

“Teamwork is the key and facing a team like Naitasiri, working together will get the job done,”he saikd.

“We need to improve our set pieces and our defence. This is important for us to win and we plan to do our best on the day.”

The clash is set for 3pm tomorrow at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.
