Must win game

THE Suva rugby side is anticipating a tough battle against Vatukoula today in the Skipper Cup competition at Albert Park.

The match would determine Suva's fate whether they qualify for the semi-final or not.

Suva sits on fourth spot on the points table with 32 points from 10 games.

A victory would boost their chances of facing either Nadroga or Naitasiri in the semi-finals.

Also they would be praying other semi-final spot contenders Nadi, Namosi and Northland stumble in their respective matches today.

Capital City side coach Salimoni Ravouvou said it was a very important match that they would need to win at any cost.

He said Vatukoula would be a tough nut to crack but they were geared up for the challenge.

"It's a very critical game for us and we are approaching Vatukoula with caution," Ravouvou said.

"It will not be an easy game and Vatukoula would be aiming to upset us on our home ground."

Ravouvou said they wanted to play the match at the ANZ Stadium but the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union had already booked the venue.

"Since the Deans competition would be on at the Stadium, we have to play at Albert Park.

"So we are asking our fans to come out in large numbers to provide vocal support to our boys for this critical match.

"The fans play a huge role in the teams and their presence will definitely motivate the players."

The match kicks off at 3pm.
