HE HAS been there, done that. Now Senirusi Seruvakula is hopeful that his relatively unknown comrades from Vatukoula can do the same at the ANZ Stadium.
As a player and skipper, former number eight Seruvakula was the tough guy for Naitasiri and helped his province to several big cup wins.
This afternoon, he will be in the coaching booth as minnows Vatukoula take on Farebrother Sullivan Trophy holders Suva at 3.30pm.
So what does he think of his team's chances?
"Discipline is the main concern," Seruvakula said.
"We can't afford to give them penalties. We have to be patient and another important aspect of our play will be our defence.
"We have to create pressure, especially with Suva's big forwards."
Seruvakula said they had to play "according to our strength".
"We have to get our set pieces right, we just have to be 100 per cent right with everything we do."
He said the match was "like a milestone" for them with the union coming back to challenge for the trophy after several years.
"We have to keep possession and get the go forward instead of them coming onto us."
Suva has made some changes and positional changes.
Only the front row and the halves combination remain the same.
Dale Tonawai, who led the team to the 33-17 win over Namosi, makes way for James Brown at number eight.
Former Fiji sevens rep Brown, who was at blindside flanker last weekend, takes on the captain's role with Jo Levula filling in at number six. Peni Raidre comes in for Samu Bola at number seven.
Halfback Aporosa Kenatale carries on at halfback with big-kicking Isoa Donaldson at stand-off after both performed well against Namosi.
Locks Jone Delana and Save Tabakanalagi swap the number four and five shirts.
Necani Wakaya, who came off the bench to set up the last try for Vesi Rarawa last Saturday, takes over from Josefa Basudra at fullback.
Vilitati Sokiveta, who had a good game at 11 moves to 14 with Sunia Kubu switching to the left while John Stewart goes to inside centre.
