NORTHLAND has shifted its focus on the Farebrother challenge following the loss to Nadroga in the final round of the Skipper Cup competition at Gatward Park in Korovou yesterday.

The Stallions defeated Northland 48-12 to finish on top of the competition.

Northland coach Watisoni Ratulevu said the team improved significantly from last season.

"We won seven games and lost four this year. Last year we didn't qualify for the Farebrother but this year we have achieved that which is a great achievement," Ratulevu said.

"We are looking forward to the Farebrother. I have laid down the challenge to the players and they are all excited to play in this competition."

Ratulevu said Northland was in the development phase after losing some key players in the past.

"Most of these players just came in this year. We have a very young squad with a great future ahead.

"Some of our players have gone overseas after winning contracts with clubs there and we have to bring in new players to replace them.

"We are now focused on the Farebrother and would do our best in the challenge."

Ratulevu said they scored two tries in the loss while most of Nadroga's tries came from broken play.

"Nadroga is a very good side. They have maintained the same set of players over the years.

"They managed to score only one try through set piece while their other tries came from broken play."

Meanwhile, Naitasiri confirmed its Skipper Cup semi-final spot after beating Tailevu 37-14 at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.
