You can call it “war of words” but for Suva and Nadroga, July 25 will mark another highlight in the Fiji Rugby Union calendar.

Suva Rugby Union secretary Tevita Tuiloa said the Skipper Cup holder’s aim was to wrest the prestigious Farebrother Trophy from holders Nadroga next fortnight in their double-header match at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.

Nadroga Rugby Union president Tiko Matawalu said this was an uphill battle for them.

With minimal time on hand, they had identified a lot of preparations to be done.

“Suva is laced with a lot of talented players and majority of them came through our system  and had secured employment in theCapital City,” Matawalu said.

Meanwhile, Namosi is scheduled to host Tailevu at Thomson Park in Navua, Naitasiri to face Lautoka at Nausori and Nadi to meet Yasawa in Lautoka.
