NEWCOMERS Lomanikaya Warriors will make its first appearance in the Fiji Touch Rugby club competition at Furnival Park today.
The team that comprised members from a Lauan family in Samabula will be playing in the development grade.
Lomanikaya Warriors will take on champion Flamingo in the under-16 grade.
Fiji Touch Association president Georgina Lasaqa said they were impressed to see new teams joining their development competition.
"Last year we had three teams in the U16 grade and four teams in U20. This year we got six teams in each grade," Lasaqa said.
Meanwhile in the men's competition, newly promoted Flamingo will face an acid test when they play Super Touch today in the super premier clash.
First Touch will play Barbarians and Super Touch takes on Bombers in the feature games of the mix and ladies grade, respectively.
