This Friday, 07/05/04, the FNRL resumes its final fixture of the Pre-Season with the Grand Final to be played in Lautoka's Churchill Park between the always dangerous Dee Cees Nadera Panthers and top Western contenders, Saru Dragons.

The Saru Dragons are coming into this weekend's match with an impressive unbeaten record against a battle tested Dee Cees Nadera Panthers with 3-1-1 record. Fans can expect some hard tackling and free flowing rugby this Friday after a brief respite last weekend in observation of the late Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara's funeral proceedings. Both teams have prepared well in the one break in between and will be coming out with al guns firing.

The Dee Cees Nadera Panthers will be looking to their big man and skipper Savirio Matairakula to lead the battle up the front with vetera coach and former Fiji Bati, Vula Dakuitoga, expected to take the field and marshall an otherwise potent Panthers backline. Saru Dragons, on the other hand, will be counting on their tough but fair-playing leader upfront, Saimoni Ralulu, to direct a young but tireless Dragons pack. Fiji Bati and Dragons Co-Coach, Semesa Cadrakilagi, will play the pivot backline role in support of a fast and enterprising Saru Dragons side that has, time and time again, posed to upset the current Eastern grip on the key championship titles offered by the FNRL.

This weekend's winners will win themselves the Tagitupou Tanoa and $200 donated by the Tagitupou Family for the Pre-Season Competition Challenge with the runner-up to receive $100. Western fans are invited to join the FNRL in its Pre-Season Grand Final this Friday and cheer their teams on.
