The Kini Vuira coached- Warwick Navosa rugby side are determined to beat Rewa in their 2018 Skipper Cup Premiership opener at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka on Saturday.

Navosa Rugby Union president Tevita Batikolikoli said yesterday the aim is to record a win over Rewa and the team have been preparing themselves well.

“They are training under the leadership of Kini Vuira, who is a Level 2 coach,” he said.

“Peniasi Damu is still part of the coaching panel. Not only that we have to show to the province of Nadroga/Navosa that we are not new to the major union despite the fact that it took us three years to return.”

Last year, Rewa beat Navosa 26-24 to lift the HFC Bank’s Josaia Bainimarama Shield at Lawaqa Park where former Fijian 7s back Alivereti Veitokani starred in the win.

Batikolikoli said they are going to beat Rewa by a big margin.

“Last year we beat Rewa in Suva then in our return match we lost to them in the last minute but we will take our revenge on Saturday.

“Our preparation is 100 percent and nothing less, no excuse at all.”

Navosa said their preparations have been boosted with the return of Jonetani Yalayala, Aminio Nakibo, Semi Laqai and they are likely to be captained by former Fiji Residents rugby league player Luke Nadurutalo.
