The Swire Shipping Fijian Latui is hoping the new format of Global Rapid Rugby will work in their favor when they take on Kagifa Samoa tomorrow.
Latui Player Frank Lomani says they have an advantage over Samoa regarding the tournament as Fijians are known for their fast-paced game.
“I think they’ve just implemented the Fijian style of Rugby in this tournament because Fijians like to take and keep the ball in hand, throwing the ball from any angle while offloading and I think it’s going to be exciting.”
The Latui spent the past three weeks familiarizing themselves with a technical game plan in order to defeat a strong Samoan outfit.
Swire Shipping Fijian Latui coach Senirusi Seruvakula has named a powerful 23-member squad for their first match in Global Rapid Rugby against Kagifa Samoa at Churchill Park tomorrow.
Seruvakula has opted for an experienced squad with Fiji Airways Flying Fijians players Eroni Mawi and Mesulame Dolokoto leading the front row.
Meanwhile, Veteran forward Mosese Voka has once again been given the nod to captain the side.
Seruvakula says it will be a big moment for number eight Timoci Davu of Nadroga and Namosi’s Netava Koroisau who will be making their international debut for the national team tomorrow.
Star player Frank Lomani will miss out the first match as he continues to nurse a minor injury sustained during the Skipper Cup match against Nadi last weekend.
The Swire Shipping Fijian Latui faces Kagifa Samoa at 3.10pm at Churchill Park in Lautoka tomorrow.
