Solomon trio to spearhead Nasinu campaign in IDC opener today in Fiji

Nasinu will be banking on its three Solomon Islanders to spark their campaign against Tavua at the Courts Homecentres Inter District Championship which kicks off today.

The Solomon’s trio of Robert Mafane, Aldrine Kilua and George Gulu played a leading role for Nasinu during the BOG when they had upset a star studded Lautoka side.

The three players will be key men for Nasinu as they go all out for their opening win against the gold miners.

Nasinu chief administrator Pravin Chand said the three University of the South Pacific students would provide the spark upfront for Nasinu.

“Two of them will be playing at striker and one is our defender, they have proven themselves during the BOG and they will be a threat at this IDC,” Chand said.

“All we need is to give them quality balls and they will do the rest. These two strikers are prolific goal scorers and they will be our key players in our first game against Tavua.”

Chand said the giant killers are focused on their first game against Tavua.

“Tavua is a tournament team, they are capable of beating top guns and they cannot be taken lightly,” He said.

“We will treat them (Tavua) just like any other big team because we know what they are capable of.”

The last time Nasinu won the IDC was back in 1990 and this year the side will do their best in trying to repeat that feat.

The game between Nasinu and Tavua will be the second match of the opening day today at 6.15pm (5.15pm Solo time).
