Nadroga’s Nasilasila switches position

NADROGA rugby team fullback Amenoni Nasilasilla has switched his position to the fly-half position as they gear up for the second round of the Farebrother trophy challenge against Nadi.

The former Fiji 7s team utility backline took over the fullback post from Apisalome Waqatabu against Northland where Nadroga’s winning streak began in the round robins.

However, in the Farebrother match against Nadi, Nadroga’s head coach Esala Nauga has a different ball game in mind and switching his players and bringing back Waqatabu to fullback is a combination to watch.

Nadi, on the other hand, has Olympic gold medalist Samisoni Viriviri in the fullback position.

The match kicks-off at 3pm at Nadi’s Prince Charles Park tomorrow.
