The Lautoka Rugby side knows making a return to the Skipper Cup competition is easier said than done.
After missing out three seasons playing in the second division Vodafone Vanua Championship, Lautoka is back to make their mark in the Premier division.
The Maroons failed to start their Skipper campaign with a win after losing to Naitasiri 29-11 at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori last week.
Lautoka Rugby president Joeli Sauqaqa says improving from last week’s mistakes is the main priority.
“We will be working on improving the line out and the scrum and also our rucks. And also discipline is a main concern given that we copped a few yellow cards.”
