NAMOSI is not taking any chances when it faces Suva in the second Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy challenge on Saturday.
And despite losing key players Leo Naikasau and Jone Vota to national duties, the Namosi camp is upbeat about a good performance against the holders.
Namosi last tasted victory in 2002 when they edged Ovalau 14-9 to win their first ever Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy match.
The victory and celebration was cut short when Nadi wrested the coveted silverware the following week at Thomson Park in Navua.
After a successful campaign in the Digicel Cup this season, reaching their first ever semi-final, the team management is hoping to turn the tables against Suva at the ANZ Stadium.
"We are training well for this match," team manager Lemeki Rokovesa said.
"The boys have marched into camp as we want to get them into the mood of winning the Farebrother."
He said beating Suva in front of its home crowd would be an uphill battle. Namosi edged the Capital City side 14-13 during their Digicel Cup affair this season.
Rokovesa said the challenge match would be a different story altogether.
"It is not going to be easy and the boys understand that. We lost two players to the Fiji 7s team but we have capable replacements.
"We are working hard at training and we will give our best shot against Suva on Saturday."
