NADROGA Knights will play the River Safari sponsored Navosa Warriors in the Nahove Trophy challenge as the Top 8 rugby league competition will be played at Vatureba Park for the first time this Saturday.

The Outrigger on the Lagoon Knights and Warriors match will be played to remember the late Sakenasa Nahove who died last month. Fiji National Rugby League operations manager Joeli Savou confirmed that the Vodafone-sponsored Top 8 competition will be played in Navosa.

"The Top 8 games will be played in Navosa for the first time," he said.

"And to mark this special occasion, a match will be played between Nadroga Knights and Navosa Warriors to remember the late Sakenasa Nahove who died from a rugby league game.

"The two teams will battle the Nahove Trophy to mark this special occasion."

Savou said Nahove's father would be the chief guest at the challenge match to present the Nahove Trophy to the winning team.

He said FNRL was proud to further take the Top 8 competition to communities.

"This is the first time, the Top 8 competition is coming to Navosa.

"Only the Super League was the last rugby league games to be played in Navosa.

"We're happy to make this move and we're hoping that a good crowd would be present to support their teams and also to witness rugby league at its best."

This weekend's matches will mark round two of the Top 8 competition.
