Sabeto clubs eye history

NEIGBHOURS Sabeto Roosters and Ravoravo Rabbitohs want to create history in the FNRL Vodafone Cup competition by making it an all-Sabeto final.
The Roosters will face heavyweight Makoi Bulldogs in the first semi- final while the Roosters faces USP Islanders in the second semi-final.
The Rabbitohs team is the breakaway from the Roosters team after the Sabeto village elders decided to split the team because of the abundance of rugby league players in Sabeto.
The newly formed Rabbitohs reached the quarter-final last year and this year they have moved up a notch to feature in the semi- final after defeating Burenitu Cowboys in the quarter-finals.
The side has been bolstered with the inclusion of former Fiji Bati rep Tikiko Noke teaming up with seasoned campaigners such as Josateki Savou.
But it would not be a smooth sailing for the two Sabeto teams as they would be up against a very physical Makoi Bulldogs side and the unpredictable USP Islanders.
The Islanders under the leadership of former Fiji Bati and Makoi Bulldogs rep Jone Wesele would be a team to watch.
FNRL chief executive officer Timoci Naleba said the two premier semi-finals would be exciting to watch.
He said all teams deserved their spots in the Top Four and they would be all out for a win.
