Tavua hungry for a win

Maciu Malo
Thursday, May 08, 2014

BOOSTED with the opening of a new rugby house and a rugby gym, the Tavua rugby side is confident of creating an upset against Naitasiri in the Skipper Tuna provincial competition on Saturday.

The $15,000 rugby development centre was sponsored by the Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama.

Tavua is hungry for its first win this season after being defeated by Ovalau and Nadroga in the previous games.

Team secretary Cabe Kotoimakoga said the new rugby development centre had inspired the players to do well against the highlanders. He said the side was hungry for a win and was confident his troops would give Naitasiri a good run for their money.

"The new rugby gym has benefitted the players during game time as evident in the game against Nadroga last week," said Kotoimakoga.

"Even though we lost but we gave them a good battle.

"The game against Naitasiri will be a step up from last weekend's game and we are targeting to win our first home game."

He said the presence of their home fans would also inspire the players to come out of their comfort zones.

"We need to win this game to make amends for our two losses."

"This is our first home game and we are hopeful of producing the goods for our fans.

"We have defeated Naitasiri once here at Garvey Park and we expect tough battle on Saturday."

The match kicks off at 3pm.
