Wesele boost Bulldogs revenge

FORMER Fiji Bati Jone Wesele's return from injury will boost the Makoi Bulldogs in their Vodafone Cup Top 8 match with Saru Dragons today.

The Fairtrade-sponsored side aims to bounce back from their 8-12 loss to the Dee Cees Nadera Panthers last week.

And coach Maika Vunivere said other senior players had also recovered from injury and attended training with the squad.

"Jone Wesele and Ilaisa Rogo will make their return from injury and they will boost the side," he said.

"Training has been coming along well and we look forward to facing the Dragons."

The Bulldogs had lost to the KBL-sponsored Dragons in round one competition in Lautoka but Vunivere said round two was a totally different ball game.

"That match was in their back yard but this time it's on our turf at the Suva Grammar grounds.

"The heat and the sun favoured them then and this time we hope the ground, the weather and our fans' support would favour us.

"We know they are currently leading the Top 8 points table but we are ready to face them."

The match kicks off at 2.05pm.
