EVERGREEN prop Viliame Rokogu runs into Nasau Park today, surpassing the 110 mark in matches for his home team Ovalau.

And his teammates are all fired up to win their round five Digicel Cup clash with Nadi to celebrate Rokogu's milestone achievement.

The 35-year-old front rower has played more than 110 games for the giant killers. He started his rugby career in the B Division and has played in every season for Ovalau since their promotion to major division in 2000.

Team manager Semi Kamikamica said they were proud of Rokogu's achievement.

"This is a historic achievement for Vili, he started representing Ovalau while we were at the B division competition," he said.

Kamicakamica said they wanted to win the match against Nadi and dedicate it to Rokogu.

"We are so proud of him. For someone to play more than 110 games for a team, that just shows the calibre and dedication he has. He loyalty is to Ovalau, so in this game against Nadi we want to this for him."

Ovalau beat Nadi last year at Lautoka's Churchill Park.

"We will want to prove that we can repeat our performance against Nadi last year. We want them to know that our win was not a fluke. We can do it again and we will do it again," Kamikamica said.

Ovalau has one win from four games.

The match kicks off at 3pm today.
