The Tomasi Tuicakau captained-Nadroga side aim to win the senior division final during the Courts Interdistrict Championship at Churchill Park in Lautoka today.

The Stallions play Navua after they walloped Tailevu/Naitasiri 5-0 in the semi-final yesterday.

The Stallions were in a devastating form from the first minute as Tuicakau found the back of the net in the 7th minute.

Midfielder Gerard Voi increased the lead midway in the first half as they led 2-0 at halftime.

Tuicakau scored his second goal after the break and Taniela Raubula added another in the 68th minute after he neatly dribbled past two defenders to slot in the fourth goal.

Goalkeeper Sakeo Taganeca also had his name on the score-sheet after netting a late penalty.

Nadroga coach Kaminieli Tuilevuka was impressed with their unbeaten run so far.

“We hope to win but we won’t underestimate our opponents.”
