10:06 am on 6 April 2007

A big game is in store in the second round of the IRB Pacific Cup when last years' finalists Fiji Warriors will clash against Savai'i Samoa in Lautoka, Fiji tomorrow.

Warriors coach Etuate Waqa has named a solid lineup that includes six players who have represented Fiji at test level, as well as former sevens player Dale Tonawai.

Waqa says he is not taking any chances against the Samoan side and his side must win if they want to have any chance of playing in the final again.

The Warriors lost last weekend and Savai'i, who also lost, need to win after going down to Upolu Samoa last weekend.

In other games this weekend Upolu Samoa host Fiji Barbarians in Apia and in a Tongan derby Tautahi Gold meet the Tau'uta Reds.
