NADI does not have a good record against Suva in the Digicel Cup competition for the past three years.
Losing all their encounters since 2011 should be the motivator for the young Nadi side, coached by one of the top local coaches in Iliesa Tanivula.
Putting aside the Nadi Rugby Union's off-field battle with the Fiji Rugby Union, the Jetsetters need to be on their toes when it matters in such big matches.
With Tanivula back at the helm after being away the past couple of weeks, the Inia Naqia-captained side is out to break its losing jinx against Suva.
They lost 6-30 in 2011, 22-32 in 2012 and last month, they were again edged 8-13 by a powerful Suva forwards.
Nadi last won the Digicel Cup in 2008 where they scooped both provincial trophies for the season. It was under the guidance of Tanivula.
Laced with players such as Aporosa Vata and Vereniki Goneva, the Nadi team was unstoppable that year. They wrested the Farebrother-Sullivan trophy away from Naitasiri at the then TFL Stadium as they stamped their mark.
This new-look side, led by Naqia, is out for a challenge.
Assistant coach Joeli Lotawa said the morale of the players was high prior to the knockout encounter tonight. He said they would travel to Suva with confidence to overcome the ghost that had haunted them for the past three years.
