Burotu returns to lead Tavua against Suva

Maciu Malo
Friday, June 06, 2014

FORMER national 7s rep Seremaia Burotu will spearhead Tavua's campaign against Suva in the Skipper Tuna provincial games tomorrow.

The France-based inside centre is expected to partner his fellow France-based flyer Sionasa Vunisa in the backline.

Team secretary Cabe Kotoimakogai said the inclusion of Burotu and Vunisa inspired the underdogs to upset the Capital City ruggers.

He said Burotu was expected to inject power and pace to their backline.

"It's an honour to see Burotu training with the boys and has adapted well to the team environment," said Kotoimakogai.

"His inclusion will boost the boys to do well against Suva."

Kotoimakogai said the side would give Suva a good run.

"Our aim is to secure our first win this season and we will give our best shot to create an upset against Suva," he said.

"Playing in front of our home fans will also inspire the boys and we are ready for the challenge."

He said Suva would be a tough nut to crack but banked on his troops to deliver the results.

"Suva is one of the champion teams in the country and it will be an uphill battle for our boys to beat them. But our boys know what is required of them and we will give our best for our fans," he added.

The game starts at 3pm at Garvey Park.
