JACK's Nadi has now turned its focus on the upcoming Farebrother Sullivan Trophy challenge.

The Jetsetters' Skipper Cup campaign ended over the weekend when it lost its semi-final clash against Naitasiri 9-15 at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Nadi's head coach Iliesa Tanivula said the loss against Naitasiri was history.

"I guess we just have to get home, chill down a little bit before we prepare for the Farebrother," he said.

The former Auckland Blues flyer said Naitasiri exposed his side weaknesses which they needed to rectify before the challenge match on October 18.

"I guess we got a lot of work to do and we will prepare for it."

Nadi is the last challenger to the coveted trophy.

Meanwhile, the winner of the B Division competition will also have a chance to challenge Fiji rugby's provincial prestigious silverware.

Naitasiri will be the first team to challenge the trophy on August 30.

The order and dates for the Challenges:

30 August - Naitasiri

6 September - Northland

13 September - Suva

20 September - B Division Champion

27 September - Tailevu

4 October - Namosi

11 October - Vatukoula

18 October - Nadi
