Finau to play key role for Nadroga against Lautoka

Maciu Malo
Friday, January 17, 2014

VETERAN Peni Finau will spearhead Nadroga's campaign against his former Lautoka teammates in the first round of the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League game this weekend.

The tough defender will be ably supported by his younger brother and former Ba, Lautoka and Suva rep Leone Vurukania in this much-anticipated clash.

Nadroga soccer president Vijay Singh said the experience of Finau and Vurukania would be vital for the Coral Coast boys as they anticipate a good start to this year's competition.

He said the players had been training hard for the past weeks and were confident of a good outing against the Sugar City boys.

"We are ready for Lautoka and we want a flying start by winning against them in our first game," said Singh.

"We have a few experienced players in the team to bank on such as Peni, Vurukania, Luke Rawadamu, Benji Rokobaro and goalkeeper Sakeo Taganeca.

"The boys are looking forward to the clash and they are confident of winning their first game of the year at home."

Singh, however, said Lautoka would be a tough nut to crack.

He said their opponents would come to Lawaqa with the will to win to convince their new sets of officials.

"Lautoka is a champion team and we respect them," said Singh.

"They have been training from December last year and they will want a win under their new elected officials.

"It will be a tough game but our boys are ready for the challenge."

Singh has called on the people of Nadroga to come out in numbers and support the boys.

The game will be held at Lawaqa Park on Sunday at 3pm.
