Tailevu keeps low profile in Farebrother challenge
26 September, 2014, 12:00 am
TEBARA Bus Tailevu is keeping a low profile as it prepares to challenge the Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy from holders Nadroga.
Tailevu will be the fifth team to challenge the coveted silverware as the Stallions have successfully defended the trophy during the past four challenges.
Nadroga has successfully defended the trophy against Naitasiri, Northland, Suva and Naitasiri Northern Bulls and in the process, they have pocketed $20,000 for winning the four matches.
Tailevu will be hoping to avenge last year’s loss at the ANZ Stadium.
The green machine had Nadroga as its final hurdle but failed to stop a spirited Nadroga side that had the services of Setefano Samoca, Savenaca Rawaca, Apisai Domolailai and Samisoni Viriviri who scored an individual solo try.
Former Flying Fijians coach Inoke Male who is at helm for Tailevu wished not to comment but directed all interviews to the manager.
Tailevu will be banking on season campaigners such as Emori Waqa, Jack Costello, Sakeo Latianara, Anare Sovanivalu, Jale Sassen, Sam Doughty, Jo Matasau, Isei Ravulo, Seru Cavuilati, Jaoji Dakuvula, Samu Bainivalu, Eneri Kuru, Iliesa Keresoni and veteran James Vuli.
The HFC Bank Farebrother Challenge match will be played at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka at 3pm tomorrow.
