National rugby sevens squad member Alivereti Veitokani and Sakuisa Gavidi will start for BLK Nadroga in the fourth challenge of the HFC Bank Farebrother Challenge 2016.

The Stallions face BLK Naitasiri at Prince Charles Park, Nadi at 2pm today.

Veitokani is expected to slot in at No.10 and Gavidi at scrumhalf.

Last week the duo were instrumental in scoring two tries a piece as the Stallions walloped Namosi 52- 20 despite trailing 13-12 at halftime.

Nadroga captain Rupeni Nasiga said they will certainly lift their performance in the fourth challenge.

“If the match is played in Nadi or Suva we will defend the turf as our home ground,” he said.

 “But we cannot be resting on our laurels after we beat Namosi.

“Nadroga rugby is all about building up our games one after the other. We will be a better side if we continue to improve week in and week out.”

The side will be banking on Apisalome Waqatabu, Eremasi Radrodro, Iliesa Ratuva, Apete Daveta, Joeli Lutumailagi, Iliesa Leca, with Eroni Vasiteri and Ifereimi Tovilevu.
