Nadi know how to win, even if they are given half a chance. In the 2017 Vodafone Fiji FACT they will need to show their true mettle even as they take the field as defending champions.
They have continued their trend of being slow starters in recent tournaments, but have finished strongly at right end of the tournament. They will need to start winning from game one, to ensure that they have best chances of qualifying for the finals.
Nadi will make their own luck in the 2017 Vodafone Fiji FACT. They have no major stars like the past, but they have a very uniform side with a good balance of experience youth, skills and physical strength to see them past pool play.
The Jetsetters will have to look for an impressive showing from their strike force of Napolioni Qasevakatini, Rusiate Matererenga and Ratu Josevata Dugucagi to defend their title.
Nadi have won the Fiji FACT for four times and will be aiming for their first ever back to back win.
The Jetsetter will face arch rivals Ba at 3pm in their opening match at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.
