Suva, Nadi and Lautoka will battle for a spot in the semi-finals following today’s results.
It’s a do or die situation for Lautoka while Nadi is still in a good position as things seem easier for Suva who will be up against Savusavu next.
Labasa will have a point to prove against Ba in the last match tonight.
FBC commentator, Raymond Stoddart has mentioned concerns that may rise for the Babasiga Lions is whether they can perform against the Men in Black after hectic travelling schedules.
