FORMER Flying Fijians head coach Samu Domoni will guide the Tacirua Transport Naitasiri rugby team to its remaining matches of the Skipper Cup competition.

Domoni, who was assisting the late Eroni Vereivalu, takes over at the helm with a few matches in hand prior to the semi-finals next month.

Naitasiri rugby team manager Waisea Luveniyali confirmed Domoni would be the acting head coach for the remainder of the season, assisted by Ratu Emori Tuisese.

"Sam Domoni will coach Naitasiri," Luveniyali answered when asked who would be the man at the helm for the highlanders to replace the late Vereivalu.

"There will be no change to our structure, Samu and Master Eroni have worked together closely from the start of the season and last year so it is not going to affect us and he is going to coach us and will be assisted by Ratu Emori Tuisese."

Luveniyali said their focus were to beat Macuata at its home ground tomorrow.

"We're here in Labasa preparing for the Macuata game.

"We were at the funeral earlier this week and the passing away of Master Eroni would boost us to give our best for the remainder of the season.

"We will not underestimate Macuata, we respect them as they will be playing on their home ground so we're preparing for this game like any other match."

The Naitasiri and Macuata game kicks off at 3pm at Subrail Park in Labasa.

Luveniyali urged the Naitasiri supporters in Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata to flock in numbers and support the highlanders as they aim to win and qualify for the semi-finals next month.
