"We respect them but we are coming to the Fiji Bitter Escott Shield final to win the title."
That's the word from Army Rugby Club president Lieutenant Colonel Amani Suliano as he looks forward to the final against defending champions Navy on Saturday.
Lt-Col Suliano said they had a team which consisted of a lot of unknown players but they were coming to the final with a mission.
"From the start of the season our aim was to win the Fiji Bitter Escott Shield and we're just one game away from achieving our goal," Lt-Col Suliano said.
"We respect the Navy team which has a lot of current Suva provincial players but this will not dampen our fighting spirit when we run out at Albert Park this weekend.
"We will give them a hard game and we will not back down."
Lt-Col Suliano said the Army team had been training well throughout the week after the semi-final win over Police last Saturday.
"Our two coaches Joeli Vulavou and Peni Baleira have been working hard with our players especially as we try and improve from where we left off last weekend.
"This week at training the focus has been on our fitness and set pieces and we believe these are two key areas of our game which we need to improve on.
"The morale in camp has been very high and everyone is just looking forward to the game on Saturday," Lt-Col Suliano said.
Lt-Col Suliano said the team had been getting a lot of encouragement from former Army players who had played for the Fiji Bitter Escott Shield in the past.
"The team has been getting a lot of pep talk from some of our former players and this is just to motivate and boost the morale of our players."
Army will be captained by former Suva skipper Napolioni Naulia.
