USP touch to play quarters

THE USP Touch Association is confident of completing their quarter-finals tomorrow so they can complete their competition on time.

Bad weather conditions nationwide last week forced the organiser to postpone the games to tomorrow.

Organiser Tevita Mau said they had a deadline to stick to as they are scheduled to start a different competition in mid-March.

Metra will face Raiwaqa White in the third quarter-final and Raiwaqa Blue will be up against Sixers.

Mau said White was unbeaten but should not be too confident against an upcoming Metra side.

"Sixers go into their quarter-final with an advantage as they finished second in their pool after pool games while Raiwaqa Blue finished third in their pool," he said.

"And following upsets in the first two quarter-finals, the outcome of these two matches are hard to predict."

Last week, pool two bottom-placed team USP upset pool one champions Raiwaqa Red 6-4 in the first quarter-final and Broncos I won by default over Broncos II in the second quarter-final.

"Familiarity of the ground conditions favoured USP but this young brigade of the Raiwaqa Reds will be a force to reckon in years to come when you see the age bracket largely grouped in the 14-17 years category."
