Maciu Malo
Saturday, August 30, 2014

THE Tuwalu Tigers will be spearheaded by former Flying Fijians speedsters Isoa Neivua and Sekove Leawere in the FNRL premier quarter-finals encounter against Davuilevu Knights in Suva this afternoon.

The highlanders will be banking on fitness and sheer guts to take them through to the semi-final stages.

Nadroga Navosa zone development officer Suliasi Cakautabu said the players had prepared well for the battle.

He said the players had set their target of securing a spot in the Top 8 competition and they would play their hearts out to fulfil their goal.

And the inclusion of the two former national rugby reps has boosted the morale of the players to make their fans proud.

"This is the first year for the Tigers to feature in the FNRL competition and they are serious about stamping their mark in the competition," said Cakautabu.

"The players will bank on their fitness and guts as their weapons to win them the game,

"The inclusion of Neivua and Leawere will bolster the morale of the players in the do or die encounter."

Cakautabu said the side also anticipated a tough game against the experienced Knights outfit.

"The Knights have been playing the sport for the past four years and they have a wealth of experience under their belt," he said.

"The side also has some talented players who are keen to display their worth against the Tigers.

"It will be a good game."

Meanwhile, in another exciting feature the Mesake Navugona-coached Islands Electric Lautoka Crushers will battle against the tough Raiwaqa Knights.

Laced with young and development players, the Crushers will be using this game to expose their young talents against the Nadroga Zone champions.
