KAIVITI Silktails head coach Wes Naiqama has made a change to his side to face Glebe Dirty Reds on Saturday at Mascot Oval.
Maikeli Serulevu was left out with Timoci Bola making the starting line-up, League Unlimited reported. Josh Delailoa will be the lone Fijian on the opposing team as the two sides get ready for round five action.
In last week’s 30-26 defeat to Windsor Wolves, tries were scored by replacement players, Pio Seci, Vuate Karawalevu, halfback Mosese Qionomacawa, centre Inoke Vasuturaga, fullback Ratu Jilivecevece and three conversions nailed by playmaker Waisale Nayavucere.
Meanwhile in the NRL competition Fiji Bati duo Brandon Wakeham will run from the bench as the Bulldogs take on Tui Kamikamica’s Storm side on Saturday.
Kamikamica, NRL reported, was named to swap the role he filled at kick-off last weekend.
Tomorrow will see Kane Evans (reserve) and Marcelo Montoya’s Warriors team taking on the Sea Eagles.
Montoya will run at centre. At Central Coast Stadium, Panthers strong man Viliame Kikau will face Semi Valemei and the Raiders at BlueBet Stadium. Kikau’s Bati teammate Api Koroisau has been ruled out for six weeks with a wrist injury.
