Tuva, Cuvu to battle

TUVA Highlanders and Cuvu Blues will face-off in the much anticipated Nadroga Super 8 competition scheduled at Lawaqa Park this weekend.

The Esala Nauga-coached side defeated Malomalo Sharks in a hard fought semi-final to secure a spot in the final.

Bolstered with members of some prominent Nadroga team such as Ratunaisa Navuma, Jone Navori, Timoci Sauvoli, Aisea Natoga, Jiuta Lutumailagi, Apete Daveta, the side is highly tipped to win the first Nadroga super rugby title.

But it won’t be a smooth sailing for the Highlanders as they will be given a good run for their money by the Blues which also have some big names such as Sakiusa Gavidi.

In the under-20 final, Tuva Highlanders will face Sigatoka Bulls in another spectacular final.

Meanwhile, in other games, Nadroga will field three teams in their friendly encounters against Navosa, Nadi and Namosi.

The competition is schedule for April 6.
