Wingers face off
Lome Fa'atau will face-off with Rupeni Caucau when the FMF Flying Fijians take on Manu Samoa in an IRB Pacific Five Nations Test this Saturday in Suva. Samoan pace ace dazzled in the Super 14 this year with the Hurricanes finishing as top try scorer with 10 touchdowns. He is a class act himself but reckons Caucau, who topped the chart in France with Agen is a better winger. "I am not that good", Fa'atau offered. "But I am happy with the season that I've had. Caucau is one of the best wingers in the world alongside the likes of Joe Rokocoko and Lote Tuqiri. He's one player who can change the game around at anytime". Twenty three players from the 26-member Samoa squad are overseas based players including the likes of Highlanders Seilala Mapusua and Loki Crichton. The game will be played at 3pm, Saturday, 24 June, at the Post Fiji Stadium, Laucala Bay, Suva. Tickets to the grandstand are selling at F$25.00 each while embankment tickets are F$10.00 each.
