Rakiraki wants victory

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, March 25, 2014

HAROONS Hardware Rakiraki is gunning for a win in its home game against Nasinu in the Fiji Sun Skipper Tuna premier league competition on Sunday.

After two wins over the weekend, this weekend's game against the Southerners will be a special one for their fans.

The side thumped Tailevu North 7-nil on Saturday and later defeated Lami 3-2 on Sunday.

Team president Shaneel Chandra Gounder said the players had been told to win the game for their fans.

He said the side lost their first home game to Tailevu Naitasiri in the first round and the boys had been urged to make amends this weekend.

"Our two wins over the weekend have set us a good platform to beat Nasinu," said Gounder.

"We want to win this game for our fans and I am hopeful the boys will make our fans happy after the final whistle.

"We have identified our weaknesses from last weekend's games and we will be working on improving on these.

"The players are in high spirits and they have a good chance of beating Nasinu."

Gounder said Nasinu should not be treated lightly as they had players who have tasted the experience of playing in the super league competition.

"Nasinu is a formidable side with some of their players having played in the super league competition over the past years.

"They will be tough to beat but our boys will prove their worth in front of our home fans."

Gounder has called on the people of Ra to come out in numbers and to support the team.
