Namosi ready for battle

THE Namosi rugby side is keen to bounce back from its earlier loss to Naitasiri in the Skipper Cup competition.

The Timoci Wainiqolo-coached side lost to the Highlanders 3-12 at Thomson Park in Navua on Saturday last week.

Namosi started the 2014 provincial competition campaign on a high thumping Macuata 41-3 in the opening round.

The side will host Skipper Cup leaders Nadroga today.

Namosi team manager Apimeleki Taukei is optimistic of turning their earlier loss into a major victory this weekend.

"Our preparation is normal. We have intensified it a little bit because of the loss last week and have learnt couple of lessons against Naitasiri. We are looking forward to an improved performance in this game," he said.

"Nadroga is the provincial rugby champs and no one can dispute that. We hope for a good and tough match this weekend and hopefully turn out victors."

Taukei said the Namosi fans should not lose hope and asked for their support against the Stallions.

He also thanked the people of Nabukebuke and the sponsors for their continued support.

"Namosi is new to this competition and it's just our second year."
