Fiji Bitter Escott Shield defending champions Navy is one game away from achieving its ultimate goal — to win and keep the title in the 100th year of the competition.
The Escott Shield will be 100 years old next year. It was donated in 1913 by Sir Ernest Bickham Sweet-Escott, the governor of the colony at the time, with the purpose for competitive club competition.
The first championship was won by the Pacific club.
This weekend, Navy will face arch rivals Army Green in the grand final at Albert Park today.
Fresh'et Navy manager Jo Tunidau said they had set their target after winning the title last year.
Tunidau said the plan was to win again this year and keep it when the title celebrates its 100 years in existence.
"The boys have been focused on the job they are to do and now we just have one more game to go," Tunidau said.
Last weekend, Navy defeated Raiwaqa in a tough semi-final clash and Tunidau said they were confident going into that game.
"We were not surprised with the win because we had gone into the match focused on retaining the title and keeping it until 2013.
"We knew Raiwaqa would be very strong and that was why we had to lift our game to another level from the previous week," Tunidau said.
Navy is a very experienced side and will be led by captain Ilitomasi Nawalu from his number eight position.
Nawalu will be well supported by powerful pack which includes former Fiji Warriors props Vesi Rarawa and Manasa Saulo.
Other key players in the forwards include Jo Levula, Waqabaca Kotobalavu and lanky Savenaca Tabakanalagi.
In the backline, Navy has also has a very experienced line with Aporosa Kenatale, Kaminieli Neiqisa, Jo Lotawa, Epeli Ruivadara, Maikeli Mocetadra and Isikeli Vuruna.
Tunidau said all their players have put their hands up to be selected in the run-on team for the final.
This year's Escott Shield final will be a repeat of last year's clash.
