Jetsetters want to end Naitasiri's winning run

Maciu Malo
Saturday, May 20, 2017

JACK'S Nadi will not take things for granted when it faces Skipper Cup points table leader Qaqa Naitasiri today at Prince Charles Park.

The Jetsetters are aware of what they will be up against and inspired to make their fans proud.

Team manager Lasaro Rabaka said the side was confident of its chances against the champion Naitasiri side. He said the boys would be out to win for their home fans.

"Playing against the points' table leader is a motivation in itself for our boys," said Rabaka.

"It will motivate the boys to play their hearts out as they will also want to defend our turf."

Rabaka said the players had slowly found their rhythm after securing a win over Northland last weekend. He said the players had combined well at training and were ready for the battle.

"We would like to do first things first — starting from out training and also doing little things right."

"And we are aiming for a win. The boys have discovered their strengths and weaknesses from our past games.

"We respect Naitasiri being a champion team."

The side will be led by former Fiji 7s rep Samu Saqiwa with former Fiji Warriors flanker Jiuta Takubu, who will start from the bench.

Rabaka said they had maintained the core players of the team that defeated Northland.

The game will kick off at 3pm.
