Suva Rugby Union team knows the kind of competition Namosi will give them when they meet today in the Skipper Cup competition.

Coach Saiasi Fuli said a lot of disruption this week was because of no training ground.

"We had to shift our training sessions from Bidesi Park to Suva Grammar School ground which is also used by Namosi.

"But in terms of our preparation, so far so good.

"We are confident that we have the best team available to meet Namosi and it's a long way to the end of the season.

"Namosi team have good players but we're concentrating on what we can do well and try to achieve our goals — to win and win well.

He said the aim was to come out on top after the round robin.

Having Nikola Matawalu playing for Suva will also boost the team's campaign as he was requested by Flying Fijians coach John McKee to at least play two games for Suva.

"We will have to confirm with Fiji Rugby Union if he can play under certain regulations. But we have a backup plan if he isn't allowed. It will be a good game so may the best team win," he said.

In recent events, three Namosi players along with John Stewart of Suva and Joeli Veitayaki of Naitasiri were called in to train with the BNZ Crusaders at Albert Park. Mosese Voka, Jale Sassen and Samu Suguturaga of Namosi team were among players seen joining them.

The game will kick off at 3pm.
