Test for two teams

KOMO and Covenant Brothers will attempt to break into the Premier grade when they play in the Suva Cricket Association promotion/relegation matches tomorrow.

The two teams will face Ono-i-Lau and VICC respectively at Albert Park.

Association vice president Alex Konrote said they were praying for good weather so they could watch quality cricket in the two games.

He said the promotion/relegation matches would bring out the best in the four teams.

"Komo will want to play their way into the Premier grade after an impressive round 1 debut," Konrote said.

"However, it will not be an easy game for them against an in-form Ono-i-Lau who defeated Moce last Saturday."

In the other match, Covenant Brothers is likely to miss the services of national sevens team captain Osea Kolinisau who is busy preparing for the third leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

"The Covenant Brothers team, which came in second in the A grade, will face the experienced VICC team who were unfortunate to end up in seventh place in the Premier grade.

"This match will be a perfect clash of class versus form. Definitely, two great games to watch and best of luck to the four teams."

Meanwhile, the other teams in the competition will play friendly matches as a build-up to the round two competition that will be held next weekend.

"All friendly matches do not, in any way, affect the round standings nor are they part of round two.

"It's just an opportunity for all teams to have a game, especially the A grade teams who have not played since last year."
