The Fiji Rugby Union could take a page out of BLK Nadroga’s book on how to lift the standard and organise provincial rugby in the country.

FRU chief executive officer Radrodro Tabualevu praised the champion side for maintaining their dominance in the 2014 Skipper Cup and 2014 HFC Bank Farebrother Challenge.

“I wish Namosi well,” Tabualevu said.

“At the same time, we have to acknowledge Nadroga’s form. They’ve got a very good development programme, which is something the FRU is taking into account.  The sort of organisation they have is something that we hope to implement throughout Fiji.

“The difference in score shown over the previous weeks without taking anything away from Nadroga is not good for our rugby. Namosi came fifth in the Skipper Cup, so they should be able to do well and we look forward to a better game.”

Meanwhile, Namosi head coach Timoci Wainiqolo has named a strong team to take on the Stallions this weekend.

Namosi: Jerry Nakaulevu, Viliame Satala, Iokobo Bose, Semi Saulaki, Petero Suiniika, Apakuki Vuaviri, Sunia Nadruku, Asaeli Boko [Captain], Etuate Nete, Jone Naucubalavu, Abele Yalayalatabu, Iliesa Salusalu [Vice Captain], Jone Vota, Leo Naikasau, Iona Tuivuna, Jone Vinaiwere.
