The jetsetters manager, Epeli Qoro says the capital city side will be out to settle the scores but they’re ready.

“The guns will be full firing at us. They’ll attack us on our scrums as we know that they have a heavy and experienced pack in the forwards. Only on our scrums, if we can tackle them, yes we can do it again.”

Qoro is also urging fans to turn up in numbers and cheer the team on.

Tomorrow’s match kicks-off at 4pm with the Under-19 semi-final between Nadi and Nadroga starts at 12pm.

In the second semi-final, Naitasiri faces Nadroga on Saturday at 3pm at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.
