An emotional Nadi captain Sivaniolo Lumelume said his boys prepared well for the battle.

“I want to thank the boys for their hard work and it paid off,” he said.

“The plan was to come and take the Farebrother and we did just that.

“I want to dedicate the win to our sponsors and fans who came out in numbers.

“Now we will have to prepare for Suva next week.”
