The Bundaberg Red Cup representative team will do battle with a lethal Fiji Bati side at Ringrose Park, Wentworthville this Saturday afternoon.
Set down for a 4pm kick-off, the best that the Bundaberg Red Cup has to offer will lock horns with a strong Fiji Bati outfit in a match that will no doubt live up to all the pre-game hype.
The Fiji side is littered with NRL players such as Wes Naiqama and Daniel Rauicava and will prove a formidable opponent for the Bundaberg Red Cup side.
Another interesting side note to the match is Henry Raiwalui, who was a grand final hero for Wentworthville only a few weeks ago, will be running onto his home ground for his native Fiji and be facing off against many of his Magpies team mates such as Aaron Fluke and Brett Sargent.
All attending media are encouraged to arrive early as at 2pm the Cook Islands U/20's will take on the Fiji Bati U/20's in the curtain raiser.
Admission to the public for both of these great games of football is only $5 per adult with Pensioners and Children U/16 FREE.
