TOWN fathers Chandu Umaria and Jay Whyte have joined the Digicel Cup final fever by placing a bet.
Sigatoka Town special administrator Whyte, who is backing the defending champions Nadroga, put forward a bet to his Suva City counterpart Umaria, who graciously accepted the challenge yesterday.
The winner of tomorrow's showdown will see the opposing special administrator wear the champion's jersey or shirt to work next Monday.
Digicel Fiji head of marketing Sheryl Singh believes this will add spice to the competition final.
Whyte said he felt that another exciting way to build interest would be to challenge his counterpart in Suva to this bet.
"I feel very confident that Nadroga will annihilate the Suva team and leave me to sit back and watch Mr Umaria wear the beautiful black and white Nadroga jersey to work on Monday," Whyte said in a Digicel Fiji statement.
Umaria remains optimistic with Suva's chances and is confident he will have the last laugh.
"I'm confident that the Suva team will rise to the occasion and give Nadroga a good go in the final at Lawaqa Park, and I'm also confident that the Digicel Cup will be travelling to Suva on Saturday afternoon," Umaria said.
"I want to tell my counterpart to ask the Nadroga Rugby Union to polish the Digicel Cup before it travels to Suva on Saturday. And Mr. Whyte can go and get a beautiful blue Suva jersey for himself and I'll pay for it because he's surely wearing that next Monday."
"I know that a lot of people are saying 'Suva Nene' but in Nadroga it's 'Hakwa Nadro' all day, every day," Whyte added.
The Nadroga versus Suva match will start at 3.30pm at Lawaqa Park.
