Former national sevens rep and Nadi rugby wing Asiveni Lutumailagi believes Tailevu will leave their best for the last on Saturday.

After edging Namosi 22-21 last Saturday, Nadi will defend the Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy in the last round of the Skipper Cup Premiership competition at Prince Charles Park.

Lutumailagi knows what it takes to play for the coveted silverware especially against a fired up Tailevu side which defeated Naitasiri 24-19 in round 13 of the Skipper Cup Premiership last week.

Lutumailagi scored a brilliant individual try to snatch a 17-16 victory for Nadi over Tailevu in the Farebrother- Sullivan Trophy challenge at the same venue in 2001.

“Nadi should watch out for Tailevu as they are a team to beat when it comes to challenging the prized silverware,”the Namotomoto, Nadi native said.

“It should be another cracker and expect fireworks as always.

“I’m all for Nadi to keep the Farebrother and I’m asking Nadi fans to turn up in droves for the last time in 2020 for the Jets.”

Nadi are expected to retain Sela Toga, Vatemo Ravouvou and Vilikesa ‘Pocket Rocket’ Driu, tireless lossies of Apisai Nadi and Vilive Miramira in Saturday’s showdown

The match kicks-off at 3pm.
