Lautoka wants Tui Vuda trophy

LAUTOKA is aiming for a win against Nadi in the Tui Vuda Trophy clash at Churchill Park today to set a good platform for the start of the Skipper Tuna National Provincial Championship next month.

This is after the Sugar City side was thrashed by Nadroga in a warm-up match a fortnight ago.

Lautoka Rugby Union secretary Salesi Vulakoro said the final 40 member squad for the season would be announced today.

Vulakoro said the match against Nadi was important as they prepared to host Namosi in the opening round of the National Provincial Championship.

"The players are injury free. Most of them are with the Lautoka Army team which is defending the Bougainville Bowl. They are released every Wednesday for the defence."

The Tui Vuda Trophy has been missing since 2009 and efforts are being made to replace it.

Meanwhile the Lautoka Army team retained the Bougainville Bowl after beating Force Training Group 9-6 on Wednesday.

The Tui Vuda Trophy match will kick off at 3pm. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children.
