The Fijian National Rugby League (FNRL) start their regular season competition this weekend in Lautoka on the West Coast and it will feature some great games. The highlight of the round for me is the match up of the Nadera Panthers against hometown favourites Lautoka Crushers.

The Panthers have started the season well by featuring in the Pre Season final and will look to welcome back some of their better and more experienced players like Savirio Matairakula back to their team for this weekends clash. Lautoka, the powerhouse from the late ninities, on the other hand will be looking to start their 2003 campaign in front of their home crowd and will have the services of Fiji Bati legend Kaleveti Naisoro to call the shots for them. Im gonna stick my neck out against my good mates at the Panthers and say that I think the Crushers will get the points in this epic encounter.

In other matches I can see reigning premiers QVS just tipping the young Nadi Herons side, while arch rivals Nabua will continue their great start to the season by defeating the Nausori Bulldogs. In the other match Namoli will be looking to put all drama behind them and put up a good display against local rivals Saru. Im gonna tip the Magpies (Saru) in this one. Fiji Games 7's winners, Warwick Saints will have the bye.

My Tips:

*Lautoka by 4
*QVS by 10
*Nabua by 24
*Saru by 6
