Crushers challenge

Emoni Narawa
Saturday, June 28, 2014

LAUTOKA Crushers rugby league side wants to continue its winning form, in the Fiji National Rugby league Vodafone Cup premier club competition.

The side, coached by former Fiji Bati, Mesake Navugona has been piling big scores against its oppositions in the past weeks.

Last week, it dethroned Vuda Jets 64-2. And today, the side will want to continue that form against an experienced Lautoka Warriors team.

Navugona said playing to the team's game plan had been the winning formula for the young side.

"We set up a plan for this season from the beginning of the year and each week, the boys have been playing to that," he said.

"I told the players to follow the set-up well and the scoreboard will look after itself." He said today's crunch against the Warriors would be another challenge.

"We're taking this game just like any other match. We respect the Warriors, they got a lot of experienced and big players in the team but we're looking forward to that challenge."

Navugona said the main goal was to qualify for the Top 8 playoff.
