Warm-up games for Suva

THE Suva men's volleyball team will play warm-up games this weekend with Nasinu and Nakasi.

Suva Volleyball Association president Sakiusa Taubale said the warm-up was a build-up to the Easter Championships next weekend.

He said the two associations had shown interest in playing against Suva in a bid to give them some game time ahead of the major competition.

"We had been talking about it for a few weeks and it's a good initiative," Taubale said.

"Nasinu and Nakasi need some game time ahead of the Easter Championship and so do we."

He said the Suva women's team would play against the team from Qauia.

"We are lucky to have a chance to play against Nasinu, Nakasi and Qauia before the Easter Championships.

"This will give our players a chance to test themselves in a match situation and identify their weaknesses.

"Then they can work on improving those mistakes and weaknesses in the week before the championships.

The Suva men's side won the Vulaca Championship in February and the Vanua Challenge title last month and will be aiming to make it three back-to-back titles next weekend.

Raiwai is defending the Easter Championship title.

The Suva women's team is still trying to come to terms with the loss in the final of the Vanua Challenge to Lautoka and will be aiming to redeem themselves next weekend.
