Nadroga Rugby Union President Jiuta Waqavonovono says they look forward to giving defending champions Suva a hard time on the field when they meet on Saturday in the Skipper Cup final.

Nadroga last won the Skipper Cup in 2017 and lost to Suva in 2018 and 2019.

Waqavonovono says Suva is the best team in Fiji as they’ve ruled the competition for a few years now.

“We respect the players Suva has been grooming for this Skipper Cup especially the new players, we respect that! It’s the contrast of the style of play that we are looking at.”
