Two rugby powerhouses clash at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori today.

Both have missed out on winning the Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy.

But Naitasiri and Nadroga can win the Skipper Cup Premiership title next week. The teams clash in the semifinal in the 3pm showdown which should live up to expectations as always.
