BURENITU Cowboys are confident of securing their first win in the FNRL Vodafone Cup round two games against Topline Warriors on Saturday.
The side which narrowly lost 13-16 to defending champion Sabeto Roosters over the weekend and also lost to Nabua Broncos at Keiyasi a fortnight ago are hopeful of a good outing against the Warriors.
Head coach Jo Nayacatabu said the side needed a win to improve its ranking in the points table.
He said the players had been camping at Burenitu Village in Ra in their quest to win the game.
"We narrowly lost our two previous games and we are hopeful to make amends this weekend," said Nayacatabu.
"We have defeated the Warriors in our first meetings this year and I am confident the boys can beat them again.
"Our aim is to secure a bonus point win to improve our standings in the points table."
Nayacatabu said he would name a strong side for the game.
"We introduced some development players last week as some of our senior players were injured.
"We will field a strong side this week as we target to secure a bonus point win.
"The boys also committed many basic mistakes last week which led to our downfall and we will come prepared on Saturday," he added.
