NADROGA's best player for 2013 Manoa Tamaya has been rewarded for the second time.

The towering utility back rower, has been handed the captain's armband to lead the Stallions' quest to defend the provincial rugby competition, now known as the Skipper Cup.

Tamaya featured in all 14 games for Nadroga last year and scooped several man-of-the-match awards, thus prompting Nadroga Rugby Union officials to consider him to lead the battle upfront.

Yesterday, at the launching of the competition, Tamaya proudly showed off the new Nadroga jerseys which would be worn this season.

NRU vice-president Ratu Luke Vidovi said Tamaya worked tirelessly last year.

"Manoa Tamaya will captain Nadroga this season," he said.
