The Tailevu rugby team must beat Rewa in today’s Skipper Fiji Rugby Championship at the Nakelo District School ground.

These were comments of Tailevu head coach Samisoni Baikeitoga after its 10-6 loss to Ram Sami Suva side last Saturday.

The wily coach said he was disappointed with the team’s performance against the Capital City side.

“We got our chances in the first half, we should have capitalised on that,” he said.

“We have a good backline but they took wrong options. We will change the line-up especially for our backline. We need to beat Rewa in order to stay in the top five.

The three remaining games are very crucial for us, in order to survive in the top five.

“We will also work on the shape of our scrum.

Suva was able to capitalise on that.

We need to work on that before we face Rewa,” Baikeitoga added.
