FAREBROTHER-Sullivan Trophy challenger Naitasiri will be use its outstanding record against Suva to inspire its players in the second last challenge of the season at Churchill Park in Lautoka tomorrow afternoon.
Naitasiri has met Suva six times in the Farebrother challenge in the past 10 years and has won on five occasions.
Fiji Bitter Suva's only victory was in 1998 when they upset Naitasiri at Naluwai.
Naitasiri, which has been preparing hard under the watchful eyes of coach Reverend Joji Rinakama, will also want to repeat its 2005 feat when they dethroned the Farebrother title from Suva just one week after the capital city side had snatched the trophy from Nadroga.
Fiji Bitter Suva coach Salimoni Ravouvou had admitted after the win over Nadroga last weekend that playing Naitasiri would not be easy.
Ravouvou said they would have to iron out mistakes if they wanted to retain the title.
While the two teams will rely heavily on their goalkickers to win them the game, it's the forward battle that will lay the foundation for victory tomorrow afternoon.
Naitasiri has a heavy pack with former Flying Fijians prop Waisea Daveta expected to be the key man up front.
Suva has made an early move to Lautoka as they prepare for their first defence of the coveted silverware.
The Samu Bola-captained side had a run at Churchill Park yesterday as they try out the ground for the challenge.
The run yesterday allowed Ravouvou an opportunity to see his players before naming his run-on team for the big game tomorrow.
All the eight forwards who started the game against Nadroga last week were running hard during their training session in the sugar city.
Bola, who led from upfront in the upset win over Nadroga, is expected to retain his spot on the side of the scrum.
