THE Ovalau rugby team is banking on their lucky stars to help them win in today's match against Macuata in the fifth round of the Skipper Cup Competition at Subrail Park in Labasa.

The islanders will leave no stones unturned as they strive for victory in order to bag the points on offer.

The team arrived in Labasa on Thursday afternoon and was welcomed by supporters who were enthusiastically awaiting their arrival.

Team manager Waisea Verenadau said they had prepared well after winning by default to Lautoka last week.

"We have come to win in Macuata. We have prepared well for this match and we want to win in front of the Macuata supporters," he said.

"We have been following the competition very well and we are positive about winning. Macuata is a tough side and that's why we are fully prepared for this match.

"It's not going to be easy playing on foreign ground and we are banking on our supporters here on Vanua Levu to turn up in large numbers and support us. Their support will definitely be morale-boosters to the boys."

Verenadau has requested their supporters to chant the well-known Lomaiviti song, O au na gone ni vanua ni veivatu.

"This is a well-known song to us and if supporters sing it, it will really boost the boys' performances on the playground."

The match kick starts at 3pm.
