Roosters eye winning run

DEFENDING champions Sabeto Roosters is looking to extend its winning streak against Nadera Panthers during their Fiji National Rugby League Top 8 clash tomorrow.

The Nadi-based side had not played the Dee Cees Bus-sponsored Panthers for quite some time, and the clash at Garvey Park in Tavua will certainly be a game to watch.

Dubbed as the feature game of the week, Roosters coach Vela Tawake said they wanted to end round one of competition on a high note.

"We have won our previous two games and we're looking at building the momentum from there," he said.

"We're just reaching our form, we made a slow start in the season because we lost nine players to overseas contracts."

He said the Panthers would be a hard nut to crack and coach Vula Dakuitoga would certainly map out a game plan to try and dethrone the champions.

"We have not met the boys from Nadera for quite some time."

Tawake added they needed to use possession well and execute the basics right around the ruck areas.

The game kicks off at 2.20pm.

Draws: Topline Warriors-KBL Saru Dragons 10.10, Pack Leader Nabua Broncos-Police Sharks at 11.35, Burenitu Cow-FairTrade Makoi Bulldogs at 1pm.
