Rugby league moves to Navosa

ROUND two of the Vodafone sponsored Fiji National Rugby League Top 8 club competition kicks off tomorrow.

And in a fashionable way, the top division of rugby league makes its way to the hills of Navosa at Vatureba Park.

Defending champion Sabeto Roosters take on neighbouring rivals KBL Saru Dragons in the opening match at 10.05am.

Roosters coach Vela Tawake said they looked forward to the clash.

He said playing the Dragons was always tough.

He said they needed to start round two on a high note after a slow start in the opening round.

In other matches, Topline Warriors plays Fair Trade Makoi Bulldogs at 11.30am, Burenitu Cowboys face an uphill battle against Pack Leader Nabua Broncos at 12.55pm.

The feature game will be the Nahove Trophy challenge between Outrigger Nadroga Knights and River Safari Navosa Warriors to remember the late Sakenasa Nahove who died from a local rugby league match last month.

The fourth Top 8 match between Police Sharks and Dee Cees Nadera Panthers will be played at Nasova grounds in Suva at 3.05pm.
