Nadro's chance

Maciu Malo
Friday, August 22, 2014

NADROGA has a good chance of reaching the Innk Mobile Battle of the Giants tournament play-offs that kicks off in Ba on Saturday.

Former Stallions team director Dhirendra Lal is confident of the Stallions chances this year.

He said Nadroga players had the potential to reach the semi-final after having defeated Suva and Ba and drew with Nadi early this season.

"It's been long since Nadroga last won the BOG and I am confident the side would do wonders this year," said Lal.

"We have been drawn in a good pool and I am optimistic the side will qualify to the semi-final.

"All our seasoned players are back in training and the side has potential to create history at the BOG."

Lal said he was the team director for the then Nadroga that last won the BOG title win in 2003 in Labasa.

That team had the services of Masi Penaia Naitasiwai, Kaminieli Tulawaki, Pauliasi Gavidi, Luke Taviara, Luke Nabaro and brothers Atunesh and Nitesh Prasad

"Nadroga had once won the BOG and the onus is for these players to make their province proud."

"All teams will be tough but I am hopeful the side has what it takes to create history," he added.

Nadroga is pooled with Nadi, Lautoka and Navua.

The competition will be held at Govind Park.
