Northland, Tavua clash

Maciu Malo
Saturday, July 12, 2014

GIANTKILLER Tavua is expecting a brutal and tough battle against Northland at Gatward Park in Korovou this afternoon.

After its narrow 7-8 defeat to Lautola last week, the Gold Town boys are ready to deliver the goods against Northland and try to improve their standings in the Skipper Tuna points table.

And with the services of France-based Seremaia Burotu, the side has what it takes to upset its opponent.

Team secretary Cabe Kotoimakogai said the side had defeated Suva and nothing prevents his troops from achieving the same result against Northland.

"Nothing is impossible and I am confident we can beat Northland on their home turf," he said.

"We have beaten Suva and we can do the same against Northland.

"We have the support of the vanua and the boys have been working hard at training."

Kotoimakogai said the inclusion of Burotu had inspired the players.

"We are grateful to have Burotu in the team," he said.

"He has been vital at training and also during game time."

He believes the Tailevu north ruggers will also be targeting for a win.

"I know it is important for Northland to win this game."

"They are playing in front of their home fans and they will need a win to improve their standings."

Tavua is on the bottom end of the table and win will lift their standings.

The game kicks off at 3pm.
