Naitasiri may have beaten Lautoka 29-11 in round one of the Skipper Cup last week, but what many didn’t realize most of the Highlanders players played their first match in the top-level competition.
Every team had several young players in the opening round of the competition including Naitasiri.
Naitasiri Head Coach Dr Ilaitia Tuisese says he was impressed with the new players who had their first taste of Fiji’s premier rugby competition.
“It was a good performance Lautoka is a good team they really pressured us during the game but considering the fact having nine debutants is a very big achievement for us.”
