NADI and Nadroga will clash in a second warm-up game at Prince Charles Park tomorrow.

This is in preparation for the Skipper Tuna National Provincial Championship which starts next week.

Jack's Nadi defeated Outrigger on the Lagoon Nadroga 25-22 in the first warm-up game last month.

Tomorrow's game will serve as a curtain-raiser to the KK's Hardware shield challenge fixture between Gaunavou and Saunaka.

Nadi Rugby Union media manager Rusiate Ratakele said Nadroga was eager to turn the tables against them after the loss.

He said a total of 17 club games would also be on showcase.

"Our hardworking head coach Iliesa Tanivula and his staff have been conducting training sessions for the past two months," he said.

"There are so many young talents in the squad and this will be the opportunity for Tanivula to identify the players who will be able to face Tailevu in the opening round next week.

"The club competition will start at 9.30am. The main match between Saunaka and Gaunavou for the KK's Hardware challenge shield will kick off at 3.30pm.

"Gaunavou is the defending champion. Ironically both teams met in the final of the club competition last year."

The under-20 teams of Nadroga and Nadi will clash at 12.30pm followed by the senior's game at 1.55pm.

Admission is $3 for adults and $1 for children under the age of 12 years.
