Namosi will be the next challenger for the coveted Farebrother Sullivan Trophy.
The team will challenge Naitasiri who wrestled the Trophy away from Nadi yesterday, in a pulsating 22-15 victory at Prince Charles Park.
The Blacks will host Namosi on the first of next month as the competition goes into a break next weekend.
Following yesterday’s win, Naitasiri coach Dr Ilaitia Tuisese knows all too well that defending the Trophy will be tougher.
“We are a part of a special group to come here and wrestle the cup, it’s not easy. It was a challenge for us but the boys did it. Nadi gave us a good go, I want to congratulate them for defending the Farebrother and we all now defending it is tougher than winning it. It was a toss of the coin there but we made it, we did it.”
Meanwhile in other results yesterday, Northland registered its first win in the Skipper Cup, defeating Tailevu 16-11, Suva defeated Rewa 24-17 and Nadroga edged Namosi 29-28.
