Topline to defend title

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, February 04, 2014

WESTERN Rally defending champion Topline is ready to defend its title at this weekend's annual event at Lautoka's multi-purpose courts.

Association president Viliame Naulivou is confident of his team's chances despite the tough competition from rivals Lautoka and Nadi.

The Lautoka-based association will field two teams as it prepares to tussle against the best in the West.

Naulivou said the players knew what to expect from their rivals and they're ready.

Naulivou said their top team was beaten by Lautoka II in a friendly game last weekend and the boys had regrouped for the do-or-die clash this weekend.

"The friendly game last week has enabled us to identify our weaknesses before we defend our title this weekend," he said.

"We anticipate a tough challenge from Lautoka II who beat us last week, likewise Nadi will be a hard nut to crack.

"But our players know what is expected of them and we will do our best to defend our title."

Naulivou said the players had been committed to training and they were bracing for one of their toughest competitions ever.

"We have the players that can deliver the goods against the best teams in the West.

"We are aware that all teams will try and beat us and we will treat all games as a final.

"The team will also unleash some talented players who can become national reps in the future."

The side is pooled with Nadi and Lautoka II this Saturday.
