FORMER national reps Iferimi Tawake and Waisale Serevi will line-up against each other in a rugby match, but this time from the sidelines.
Tawake's Lions Rugby Club will face the Seattle-based Old Puget Sound Beach (OPSB) Rugby Club, coached by the sevens wizard during the Sacramento Fun Day at Robla Park in Sacramento, United States today.
Tawake and Serevi both represented Fiji in 15s rugby while Serevi was a household name in the abbreviated code.
Tawake, took up the coaching job with the Lions last year, expressed his excitement ahead of the clash.
He said they needed to deny OPSB possession from the opening whistle.
"Puget Sound is a very talented team and will play a fast-paced game. If we don't stop them early, they can do a lot of damage," Tawake said.
"I believe the Lions are up for the challenge and can compete with the best teams in the country. We need to be disciplined and focused on our goals, and I believe we can win games when we do that.
"This will be an exciting match and the players on each team know each other which will add to the competitive nature of the game."
Unlike Tawake who stands on the sideline barking comments, Serevi is always on standby to run into the field at anytime.
Lions manager Aaron Frederick said they were expecting an exciting clash.
