THE Naitasiri Northern Bulls are hoping to avoid last year's nightmare where they missed the B Division play-offs despite ending their campaign on an unbeaten note.

The side missed their chances of making the semi-finals after having less points advantage which allowed Rewa to progress through.

And this week, the Manasa Radrotini-coached side is eager to avoid the same mistake when they take on Kadavu in their final pool play.

The Bulls have already bagged two wins from two games and remain favourites to edged Kadavu.

"This is a very important game to us," said the Bulls Rugby Union secretary John Kaisuva.

"We need to win this game to guarantee our spot in the semi-finals. We don't want a draw or otherwise what happened to us last year might happen again to us.

"We will want to make things right now by winning this game against Kadavu."

The Bulls laced with experienced players such as policemen Waisale Dau and Amani Bosenawai and former national sevens rep Lepani Nabuliwaqa and coached by one of Fiji's top provincial coach in Radrotini are hoping to continue its winning momentum in the competition.

The side thumped Rewa 33-0 in the opening pool match before edging Serua 27-11 over the weekend.

The Bulls takes on Kadavu at 3pm on Friday.
