Nabua to miss three

THREE key players would be missing from the Nabua Broncos line-up when they face the Makoi Bulldogs today.

The two teams clash at 2pm at the Suva Grammar School grounds in the play-off for a spot in the semi-final of the Top 8 competition of the Vodafone Cup.

The Pack Leader-sponsored Nabua side would be without inspiration coach/player Aporosa Vosataki, winger Ilai Koro and prop Joe Tabuya.

Vosataki said the services of the three would be missed on the field against a strong side such as the Fairtrade-sponsored Makoi team.

"I have an ankle and knee injury, Ilai pulled a hamstring during training this week and Joe excused himself for other commitments," he said.

Vosataki said Makoi, the 2012 Vodafone Cup champions, would be a tough nut to crack.

Dee Cees Nadera Panthers would face-off with Burenitu Cowboys in the other play-off.

KBL Saru Dragons and Sigatoka Electric Sabeto Roosters have secured the first two semi-finals spot.
