NABUKAVESI rugby club is ready to wrest the Matanitobua Tanoa Challenge from its holder, Wardens South.

Today, Nabukavesi challenges the prestigious Tanoa in the Namosi Rugby Union club competition.

Wardens South has successfully defended the title twice but the real test is predicted to be faced against Nabukavesi.

NRU secretary Navitalai Naivalurua said Nabukavesi was the only that had beaten the Wardens club.

"This is going to be the crunch," he said.

"Because Nabukavesi is the only team that has beaten Wardens and from that I believe it is going to be an exciting match."

However, Wardens South would not be easy to overcome. Laced with Namosi provincial rugby players such as Risiate Tadulala, Vili Satala and Iliesa Salusalu, Wardens South had wealth of experienced players.

"Wardens have some Namosi reps and Nabukavesi on the other hand have some U20 reps and also some senior Namosi players.

"We will just have to wait and see after the game because these two teams have equal chances of winning the challenge match."

The game kicks off at 1.10pm at Navua's Thomson Park. In other games, former Serua Rugby Union champions which now play in NRU, Vunibau and Deuba, will feature in today's club competition.

Deuba plays Uprising rugby club while Vunibau plays Waidradra at 9am and 10 respectively.
