Maciu Malo
Saturday, July 12, 2014

THE Saru Dragons outfit is expecting a tough game from the Vodafone Cup champion Sabeto Roosters in the FNRL Top 8 competition to be held at Vatureba Park in Navosa today.

High after their first round one win, the Dragons have been training hard for this titanic battle.

Team official Lagilago Golea said the side would field a strong team in their quest to maintain their number one standing on the points table.

He said the defending champion was expected to field their best players to avenge their loss in round one.

"We defeated Sabeto 16-6 in our first game this season and we know they will come prepared to avenge their loss," said Golea.

"Sabeto is a champion team and they will not take this game lightly.

"They are expected to include big names such as Jone Sariri, Peniasi Wakawaka and Peniasi Nakarawa.

"This game will be one of the toughest for our boys this season."

Golea said the side would make some changes from the team that played the Roosters in their last encounter.

Some of the top players that missed the last game were former Fij Bati rep Tikiko Noke, Jo Vetaukula, Aminiyasi Yaroi and Seruvi Ralulu.

"The boys have been working hard at training and our aim is to maintain our impressive performance from round one.

"Our main is to win the final and the onus was on the boys to do well against Sabeto to maintain our winning record."

The Dragons lost to the Roosters in last year's Vodafone Cup competition.
