“On that note we had the meeting with the team management and team to dedicate this game for Donu,” he said.

“The team is ready to face Namosi and this is one of the motivations to work harder and to win this match. We know it will be a good challenge but as usual preparation, we a confident playing at home.”

The players will be wearing a black arm band on the game day.

Meanwhile, Nadi rugby union officials, players and the Nadi Referees Association presented their ireguregu to the family of late Rokotakala at Narewa village on Monday night.
