Test for Namosi

NAMOSI is wary of Tailevu as it counts down to this afternoon's Skipper Cup clash in Nausori.

The Iokobo Bose-captained side is one of the top four teams in the competition. However, they're not taking Tailevu lightly, as the green machine will be playing in front of its home supporters at Ratu Cakobau Park.

A win for Namosi will ensure a spot in the semi-finals in the competition.

Namosi rugby team manager Daniele Cakaunivalu said they looked forward to the clash.

"This is not going to be an easy game for us," he said.

"Tailevu is a strong team and playing them in front of their home supporters will not be an easy task to handle."

He said the players knew the responsibility and how important the clash would be.

"Yes, the players know that this is a very important game to us. We're not going to take them lightly but only time will tell what will happen during the game."

Namosi will be relying on its experienced skipper and tough prop forward Bose to lead the charge.

This season, former Fiji sevens and 15s reps such as Risiate Tadulala, Iveri Lavo, Iliesa Salusalu, Inia Boko, Apakuki Vuaviri and Sakiusa Nadruku have featured for Namosi.

In other Skipper Cup fixtures, Suva hosts Naitasiri at the ANZ Stadium, Nadroga takes on Nadi at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka, Tailevu faces Namosi, Lautoka plays Tavua and Vatukoula battles Ovalau. All matches kick off at 3pm.
