Marist to face Cakau

THE Super Premier Challenge returns in the Suva Volleyball Association competition today.

And holders Marist will be defending the title against Cakau in the first challenge of the Digicel-sponsored league at the LICI Multi-Purpose courts in Laucala Bay.

The winner from the first challenge will then have to defend the title against Celtics later in the afternoon.

Cakau team manager Manoa Ranasau said his side had prepared well and his players were itching to get on the court and play the top team in the competition.

"We will take the cup away from Marist," he said.

However, Marist will not relinquish the title easily. They will be boosted by the inclusion of national reps Qilu Elliot and Epeli Ratabacaca.

The duo are in fine form after teaming up to win the Beach Volleyball Laucala Challenge last weekend. They beat Pacific Games champions Waisale Suka and Aisake Raratabu.

In the premier challenge, Inner Circle will be the side to beat. The Suvavou-based side will face a tough task when they meet former holders G2 of Raiwaqa.

Winning and losing team players in the three challenge matches will be given Digicel free credit as prizes.
