Panthers aim for final

FORMER Vodafone Cup champions Nadera Panthers has set its sight on winning their remaining Top 8 games in a bid to qualify for the final.

The side's 30-6 loss to the Saru Dragons two weeks ago was a wake-up call for the Dee Cees-sponsored club.

And last Saturday they bounced back to register a 12-8 victory over 2012 champions, Fairtrade Makoi Bulldogs.

Nadera coach Vula Dakuitoga said his players worked hard and they knew what they had to do in their remaining round two games.

"Now it's the serious end of the competition and we cannot afford to make any more mistakes,"

"The players know what is required of them in the remaining games and they would be aiming to give their best," he said.

Dakuitoga said they would now turn their focus on facing the Burenitu Cowboys from Ra today.

"We have to assess the injuries in the team and then work with the available players for the game against Burenitu."

Nadera faces Burenitu at 12.30pm at the Suva Grammar School grounds. Prior to that, Pack Leader Nabua Broncos takes on Topline Warriors at 10.55am.

In the afternoon, Makoi will battle against Top 8 points table leaders KBL Saru Dragons at 2.05pm.
