Naitasiri team huddle before the game

Naitasiri rugby coach Ilaitia Tuisese says it will be a tough task for them to try and win the Farebrother Sullivan Trophy from Namosi. Tuisese says they know they defeated Namosi the last time they met in the Farebrother Challenge in 2018 but that is in the past.

He says this week is a different story altogether as Namosi will be aiming to retain the trophy and avenge their loss in 2018.

Tuisese says they hope that they will live up to the expectation of the fans this week.

Some players featuring for Naitasiri includes 7s playmaker Livai Ikanikoda, Kini Douglas, Joeli Veitayaki, Chris Minimbi, Tuidraki Samusamuvodre and Sikeli Kaloucava.

Naitasiri will take on Namosi at 3.30 pm at Thompson Park this Saturday. In other matches this week, Yasawa will face Lautoka at Prince Charles Park at 5 pm this Friday, Tailevu will take on Nadroga at 3 pm at Ratu Cakobau Park this Saturday, and Nadi will play Suva at 3 pm at Prince Charles Park this Saturday.
