Naitasiri prepares for Farebrother challenge

NAITASIRI has reset its focus to this weekend's first Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy challenge against Nadroga.

Despite being humbled by the Stallion in the weekend's Skipper Cup final, the Highlanders are eager to show a different game on Saturday at the same venue, Sigatoka's Lawaqa Park — the home ground of the Stallions.

Naitasiri was well polished in the scrums during the opening 30 minutes of the game and managed to hold Nadroga for 10 minutes in the first half before the floodgates began to open up for Nadroga.

After Saturday's match, Highlanders manager Waisea Luveniyali was confident his players would come back differently for the challenge this Saturday.

"The Farebrother challenge will be a different story and ball game altogether," said Luveniyali.

"We did not play according to our game plan in the Skipper Cup final and we hope to change that all around during the Farebrother match."

Nadroga coach Esala Nauga said despite the huge win, he felt they needed to be at their best to retain the coveted silverware.

"We still made mistakes in the final and we really need to get back and prepare our best before the Farebrother," Nauga said.

"Naitasiri will want to bounce back next week so we better prepare ourselves for whatever will come."
