THE Naitasiri Highlanders rugby team is hoping to upset Northland during its warm-up match today.

The Tacirua Transport-sponsored side has been losing to Northland for the past two years. The Highlanders team officials say they want to break the losing streak.

"We have been losing to Northland for the past two years. That is a long time for us, but this weekend we will want to taste our first victory against them," said Naitasiri Rugby Union secretary Ponijese Saulekeleka.

Saulekeleka said players vying for a spot in the Naitasiri team in the Skipper Tuna Cup this season could prove their worth.

Meanwhile, the Naitasiri Highlanders 10s tournament will kick-off at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori at 10am.
