The Nadroga Rugby team will be aiming to start their campaign on a winning note when they meet Suva this Saturday for their double header.
Team Manager Semi Cabenalotu says the match is crucial as 5 points is up for grabs for the Skipper Cup competition and also the Farebrother trophy.
He says they are expecting Suva to bring their A game as the capital city side will also be aiming to start off with a win.
Cabenalotu says their loss to Suva during the Skipper Cup final last year is still fresh in their minds and they will want to avoid a repeat.
