THE HFC Bank Farebrother Challenge 2014 was launched last night in Suva.

During a function at the Holiday Inn, HFC Bank chaiman Tom Ricketts officially launched the competition which will run for seven weeks starting on August 30.

Farebrother Trophy holders Nadroga will defend the prestigious title against Naitasiri in the first challenge on August 30 at Lawaqa Park. Northland will be the next challenger followed by Suva, the B-division winner, Tailevu, Namosi, Vatukoula and Nadi.

Nadroga Rugby Union president Tiko Matawalu earlier told this newspaper the order was decided by the players and the union members.

"We want to keep the momentum going throughout the challenge," Matawalu said.

"This was a collective decision, right from the players to the executives of the union who were involved in making this order.

"We are trying to go away with the normal routine where the weaker teams are put first followed by stronger teams. We are treating all teams equally because we know there are no weak teams in this competition."

The following dates have been set for the 2014 HFC Farebrother Challenge:

30 August - Naitasiri, 6 September - Northland, 13 September - Suva, 20 September - B Division Champion, 27 September - Tailevu, 4 October - Namosi, 11 October - Vatukoula, 18 October - Nadi
