LAUTOKA last held the the Farebrother-Sullivan trophy 10 years ago. That was when they ended Naitasiri's unbeaten run in 2003.
Laced with players such as Sanivalati Vunibola, Ilikimi Torosi, Laisiasa Tora, Watekini Vunisa, Mesake Beranaliva, Laisenia Tora and 1999 Rugby World Cup crack centre Viliame Satala, the Maroons defeated Naitasiri 18-13.
The side went on to defend the trophy against Nadi, Suva and Nadroga before losing it to Tailevu in the final challenge.
Heading into tomorrow's encounter, the Viliame Satala-coached side is fired up to break the long drought.
Team manager Osea Naiqama, who managed the victorious team in 2003, said it had been a decade since Lautoka last won the trophy.
"We are aware of the fact that we have not won the trophy for the past 10 years," he said.
"So we are preparing well for that. Lautoka has not won a trophy since 2003 and our aim is to break that losing jinx. We want a trophy in Lautoka this year."
On Wednesday, the team marched into camp. With a core of the Digicel Cup squad in the team, the Maroons revealed they will not take the game lightly.
"The boys know how important this game is to us. We have been doing our training.
"We have a lot of respect for Suva, they are the defending champion and we will give our best shot."
With players such as former Flying Fijian scrumhalf Kelemedi Bola, Penioni Ranitu and Timoci Vuadreu in the side, the Maroons are eager to break the title drought.
The game kicks off at 3pm at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow.
