They have the experience and a smart coach in Glen Nami.” Tepend also announced the side that will face the Vipers. Charles MartinBilly PaulEnock SinePasu AweneButler MorrisCharlie Simon cMafu KalesRoy KelaNoel JoelPaul KambiDavid LokoBernard LamaIshmael BalkawaSydney FredJunior RopAndy JohnLee JamesMcDonald AlowaleRobert VuaiTerry WapiThree players will be omitted.last_img
