Maciu Malo
Friday, August 22, 2014

THE Isoa Neivua-captained Tuwalu Tigers have set its focus on securing a spot in the FNRL Top 8 competition next year.

The side defeated Keiyasi Cowboys 10-4 in the final of the Navosa zone premier competition and will battle against the Davuilevu Knights at the national quarter-final.

FNRL development officer Nadroga Navosa zone Suliasi Cakautabu said the Tigers had been outstanding at the zone meet and would caused surprises in the elimination stages.

He said the team which was laced with talented village-based players had what it took to match the country's Top 8 division teams.

"The side has proven their worth by winning the Navosa zone and the players are eager to battle against the best in the quest to qualify for the Top 8 division," said Cakautabu.

"The players have been working hard at training in their effort to secure a spot in the super premier competition.

"The side will also expose some untapped talents that are capable of donning the national Fiji Bati jumper."

Former Flying Fijians winger Sekove Leawere will team-up with his former Nadroga rugby rep Neivua in the do or die clash against the Knights.

Meanwhile, in another interesting quarter-final, Nadroga zone champion Raiwaqa Knights will face-off against the impressive Islands Electric Lautoka Crushers.

Cakautabu said the Knights outfit had also set its target of joining the top division competition for the next season.

The top two premier teams this season will automatically secure a spot in next year's Top 8 competition while the bottom two-placed side from the top division will be relegated to the premier competition.
