Macuata aims for second win

Emoni Narawa
Friday, July 04, 2014

MACUATA will not take this opportunity for granted. A win over Northland at home will ensure avoiding the promotion-relegation this season.

The North-based side plays the sixth-placed Northland side in tomorrow's Skipper Cup competition.

Currently, Macuata sits in the bottom three on the points table with seven points.

A win for Macuata will see them out of danger while Lautoka and Tavua fight to avoid facing promotion-relegation.

Macuata recorded their only win this season over Ovalau 31-23.

On the other hand, Northland after a victory over Lautoka at Churchill Park last month will be hoping to book a spot in the top four.

After a mixed season, where they recorded four wins from seven games in the competition, the Watisoni Ratulevu-coached side needed to win this crucial match to keep their hopes alive of making the semi-finals.
