Ram Sami Suva will be looking for a third consecutive Skipper Cup Premiership title win on Saturday.

The final showdown of 2020 at the ANZ Stadium in will be against QAQA Naitasiri.

Suva successfully secured the Skipper title two years in-a-row in 2018 and 2019.

And they aim to continue with another successful Skipper campaign this year.

Suva dominated in the scrums when they met Namosi during the semifinals last week. And leading the pack was veterans like Manasa Saulo and Sireli Ledua.

Some members of the winning team last year includes hooker Ledua and first five eighth Jone Manu.

While that was history, manager Nemani Tuifagalele, said they need to work hard, especially on their discipline.

Winger Keponi Paul and Azariah Immanuel were sin binned in last week’s semifinals against Namosi.

But Suva’s 13 men managed to defend their fort winning 24-16

“Two yellow cards on Saturday, they were unnecessary,” he said.

“I think we talked hard on the discipline and this was not good, especially when you coming from the bench and you cop a yellow card.

“So we will look at that. So the lesser the mistakes we make, the better it will be for the team,” Tuifagalele added.

Suva take on Naitasiri at 6pm at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

In the Under-19 grade, Namosi will face Nadroga at 4pm while Lautoka women will play Naitasiri at 2pm.
