Nadroga team praised

AUSTRALIAN tourist John Purcell believes that many players in the BLK Nadroga team are on par to play in the Super 15 competition.

Purcell was among hundreds of tourists who witness BLK Nadroga smash Tacirua Transport Naitasiri 50-7 during the Skipper Cup final at Lawaqa park yesterday.

"I believe the Nadroga players could fit straight into Super 15, especially their inner backline players," said Purcell who hails from Brisbane and played club rugby in Nudgen All Boys Rugby School.

Samu Cava and Eroni Vasiteri played superbly for Nadroga in the midfield as they continually create gaps in the opposition's territory and their solid tackles on Naitasiri's Vilikesa Qio and Jonetani Vetau opened the floodgates for the home team to mount attack after attack and the visitors found it very difficult to counter.

Purcell singled out Setefano Samoca as his man of the match.

'I love Nadroga's number three jersey player, particurlary his work ethic, he was very busy and made some hard runs and is a great tackler. He is one player that he can fit in well in the Super 15 competition,' he said.

He added he was captured by the atmosphere at Lawaqa Park.

'It was fantastic,' said Purcell.
