Macuata will need to beat Ovalau at home on Sat­urday if they are to keep their Vodafone Vanua Champion­ship campaign on track.

The Northerners have suffered two losses in the competition and are now in a must win situation at Subrail Park, Labasa.

Macuata head coach Digitaki Le­vaci said they lifted intensity at training after their loss last Satur­day.

Levaci said some players that played last week had been down with flu and they would be making a few changes this week.

“We’re definitely looking forward to a great game against Ovalau as they have always beaten us when we go over and play at the old capi­tal,” Levaci said.

“So we don’t to let them come and win on our homeground. So far we have a win and two losses.

“Ovalau is currently the unbeat­en team. So should we manage to topple them this weekend, we have a good chance as we currently 5th on the standings.”

Meanwhile, the Ovalau rugby side is adamant of maintaining their winning run in the competition to secure a spot in the semi-finals.

Head coach, Luke Vulo said they are looking forward to a strong game against Macuata.

“We’re working on improving our game to be able to win this week,” he said.
