“It’s been a long pre-season to this point. Going into week 13 and we’ve got a trial game that’s locked in. That’s going to be curtain raiser to the NRL Melbourne Storm against Newcastle Knights game. We’ll be playing up against the FNRL academy which is great for the local academy boys. I know the boys have been doing a lot of work.”

Naiqama expresses his anticipation for the upcoming curtain raiser match, seeing it as an opportunity to gain valuable insights.

The match is scheduled to take place on Saturday at Churchill Park in Lautoka.
