Tavua aims high

Maciu Malo
Saturday, July 26, 2014

TAVUA wants to end its rugby season on a high note against Macuata in the Skipper Tuna competition at Garvey Park this afternoon.

Team manager Lepani Liga said the players needed a win to improve its standing on the points table and most importantly to make the people of Tavua proud.

He said the players were confident of securing their third win at home after having beaten Suva and Tailevu early this season.

"We are confident of a win and we want to win this game for the people of Tavua," said Liga.

"We have been camping for the past few days and we will give all that is left in the tank for this important game.

"We have the support of the vanua and the players have been urged to play their hearts out."

Liga said the side would not take its opponent lightly knowing the Northerners also needed a win.

"Macuata played in the promotion-relegation last year and they will be looking for a win to improve from its last season's performance," he said.

"The side have been camping in Tavua for the past three days and they will do their best to beat us on our home turf."
