Nadi aims to lift against Namosi

NADI is aiming to step up a level against Namosi in the Skipper Cup competition this Saturday.

This is after the Cohan Politini-coached team just managed to beat Vatukoula 22-19 in heavy underfoot conditions at Prince Charles Park last week.

According to Politini, the Jetsetters played only 40 per cent of their capability against the Goldminers.

"We had to change our game pattern because of the ground conditions," he said.

"The idea was to keep the ball tight and control the passes. But we only played 40 per cent of our game. Against Ovalau it was 80 per cent.

"So this time we were down the ladder. However the boys did well in the bad conditions."

Nadi is in third spot on the points table behind second placed Naitasiri and frontrunners Nadroga.

"Playing Namosi away will be tough," Politini said.

"Hopefully we can learn from the match against Vatukoula because it will be similar conditions there."
