Saturday, August 16, 2014

FORMER Flying Fijians winger Isoa Neivua will lead his Tuwalu Tigers team in the final of the FNRL Navosa Zone premier final against Keiyasi Cowboys today.

The flyer, who has been impressive during the round robin games, is expected to feature strongly for the Tigers in their attempt to win the title and maintain its unbeaten run.

FNRL development officer Nadroga Navosa, Suliasi Cakautabu said Neivua would be the player to watch in the final.

"Neivua is using this game to secure a rugby league contract overseas and he is expected to play a huge part for his team," he said.

"He is in top form and will be the key man for his team against the Cowboys.

"He has the experience of playing at a high competitive game and has been an asset for his team this season."

Cakautabu said Neivua's leadership quality and talent would be tested against the Cowboys.

"The Cowboys are also eying a victory against Neivua's Tigers and they will be worthy contenders for the final."

"Keiyasi also has some talented and tough players and they will give Neivua a tough time in the final.

"We anticipate a physical encounter and a winner will represent Navosa in the national quarter-finals.

The game will be played at Vatureba Park.
