Nadi wary of unpredictable Tavua

THE Cohen Politini- coached Nadi team is gunning for a win against Tavua during the Skipper Cup clash at Prince Charles Park in Nadi this afternoon in a bid to cement its spot in the semi-final.

Nadi is at third spot in the competition and a win will push the Jetsetters into second position.

Minnows Tavua upset Suva 15-12 in the competition last week.

Nadi Rugby Union secretary Noa Neivalu said they were wary of Tavua's prowess.

Neivalu said they would need to step up despite having the home ground advantage.

"The aim is to improve on our performance from last week," he said.

"The boys are fit and have been working on the set piece during training.

"We will have the home ground advantage but that will not be a bonus playing against an unpredictable team.

"We will have to stick to our basics. The scrum will have to be solid and we will have to tighten our defence.

"Tavua will be boosted by Seremaia Burotu and Sionasa Vunisa. They are two influential players who we have to contain."

Other matches today, Vatukoula will host Namosi at Theodore Park while Naitasiri will play Ovalau at Bidesi Park in Suva. All matches kick-off at 3pm.
