BLK Nadroga rugby side prepares for 100 minutes rugby as they gear up for the 2015 Skipper Cup final against Namosi on Saturday.

Nadroga rugby president Jikoibau Matawalu said it would not be an easy task for them as a defending champion to defend their title against the gutsy Namosi side.

“This will be a different final for us in the last five years we have been playing on our home soil but this year we are going to play our final outside.

“Namosi is a well balanced team who has been giving a good fright to top major union teams like us, Naitasiri, Suva and Nadi during the season,” Matawalu said.

“They were taking all these major union teams to the wire.”

Matawalu is anticipating the Timoci Wainiqolo- coached side to come out firing again this Saturday.

“Namosi will come out in full force but for us we will leave no stone unturned as defending champions this Saturday.

“The opposition will come out strongly so we are not training for 80 minutes rugby but 100minutes,” Matawalu added.

The final will be held at the ANZ Stadium at 3pm.
