THE Viria Blues rugby side is confident of defending the Sautu Trophy in the Naitasiri North Bulls club competition today after they secured the services of a new coach.

The KKBL-sponsored side faces Seniyasi in the second last challenge of the competition at the Naluwai grounds in Vunidawa.

Team manager Filipe Vulaono said the new coach had made some significant changes since he took over early this week.

"Former Naitasiri Bulls player Letia Uluikadavu is our new coach and he replaces our player/coach Jale Roko who can now concentrate on his job as a player," he said.

"He (Uluikadavu) has made some positive changes and we are confident of defending our title tomorrow (today).

The two sides were to clash last week but heavy and persistent rain around the country last week forced organisers to call off the games.

Meanwhile, Vulaono has been named manager of the Naitasiri Bulls side that will compete in the B-Division provincial competition organised by the Fiji Rugby Union.

He said the B-Division competition starts in August and his aim was to help the side reach the promotion/relegation stage and then a step further after that.
