FAREBROTHER-Sullivan Trophy holders Nadroga will be looking to lift its performance when they face Nadi in the third challenge this Saturday at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
Nadroga coach Esala Nauga after the 32-5 win over Northland last weekend said they needed to improve their game if they wanted to retain the coveted silverware.
Nauga said while his team made a slow start against Northland, they could not afford that against a team like Nadi.
He said while he was happy they had managed to retain the title, they still had some areas to improve on before playing Nadi.
"We made a slow start against Northland and only showed our true form in the second-half," Nauga said.
"We can't afford to play like that when we play in the remaining Farebrother challenges.
"But we will be working hard during training this week trying to improve on areas we see we need to improve on before we play Nadi."
Nauga named some faces fromhis team against Northland last weekend.
Against Nadi this week, Nadroga will surely name a very strong line-up as they know Iliesa Tanivula's team has been preparing well and will always come out strongly in the Farebrother challenge.
The curtain-raiser to this Saturday's challenge will be the Ka Levu Shield challenge between holders Tovolea and Lomavata.
Former Stallions skipper and Nadroga club games co-ordinator Tiko Matawalu said the three Nadroga club games challenge would be held as curtain-raisers at Lawaqa Park 1 but if the weather is unfavourable on Saturday then the challenge would be moved to Lawaqa ground 2.
"Should the weather be unfavourable the 3 challenge games will be shifted to Lawaqa ground 2 to allow better playing turf for the main match Outrigger on the Lagoon Nadroga and Nadi."
Matawalu said admission to Lawaqa Park on Saturday would be $10 for grandstand, $5 ground and $2 children.
