The Digicel Cup returns this weekend after a four-week break.
The Tavua team faces rugby giants, Nadi on Saturday and coach Jonetani Savuti says they will depend on their young outfit.
“We have a good backline with Rusiate Matai and Semisi Vauvau. While the backline is quick, our forwards also have a lot of pace and I think we can expect quick running rugby against Nadi on Saturday.”
So far this season , Tavua has two wins under their belt and with the guidance of senior reps, Vereima Mo, Jope Naleqa and Sowane Toutou, they hope to grab a few more.
The Nadi-Tavua match kicks off at Prince Charles Park at 3pm while Macuata hosts Nadroga at Subrail Park on Saturday.
