Nadroga to face Otago

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, August 05, 2014

REIGNING Fiji rugby champion BLK Nadroga is expecting a tough game against the touring Otago side this afternoon.

And with the services of two former Nadroga players in the Otago side, the Stallions will need to dig deep to secure the win.

Former Nadroga rep and national 7s rep Simeli Koniferedi will team up with fellow Nadroga native Sanaila Nahuto against their home team.

Nadroga president Tiko Matawalu said the side expected a different approach from the visitors.

He said the game would be tough.

"Otago is expected to display a different approach compared to local teams," said Matawalu.

Matawalu said the game would be a good build-up for the much anticipated Skipper Tuna semi-final against Suva on Saturday.

"We will be using this game as a build-up for the semi-final against Suva.

"Some of the boys that will play against Otago will also be given the opportunity to again play in the semi-final."

The Nadroga-Otago match kicks-off at Lawaqa Park, 3pm.
