FORMER Flying Fijians Iliesa Keresoni and Jaoji Dakuvula have been drafted into the Tebara Bus Tailevu side to prepare for the HFC Bank Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy challenge at the end of the month.

The duo was included in a squad released by the Tailevu Rugby Union.

And despite a mixed performance during this year's Skipper Cup competition, Tailevu is ready to redeem its worth at provincial level.

The green machine will challenge the coveted trophy on September 27.

Season campaigners such as Jale Sassen, Jim Temo, Isei Ravulo, former Fiji under-20 scrumhalf Seru Cavuilati, Anare Sovanivalu, Jo Matasau, Aminisitai Niukula, Samu Bainivalu and veteran flyhalf will lead the charge at training.

Yesterday, the side had its first training session at Sila Central High School grounds in Nausori.

Tailevu will be the fifth team to challenge for the trophy.

Northland will challenge Nadroga, the holders of the prestigious silverware on Saturday at Lawaqa Park followed by Suva next week.
