RAIWAQA White will meet USP in the final of the USP Touch Association competition tomorrow.

Raiwaqa won its semi-final 8-3 on Thursday while USP beat Sixers 8-4 in the second semi-final on Friday at the USP grounds.

Competition official Tevita Mau said the two semi-finals were fast-paced and the stronger teams proved their dominance.

"Featuring prominently for the Whites were national reps, the Rareba brothers Samu and Semisi with the support of Jalesi Young, Josaia Colati and old warhorse Lemeki Sevutia," he said.

"Instrumental in the resurgence of the USP side has been the contribution of national men's captain Rusiate Uluimoala who has been ably supported by USP captain Ro Veceli Mataitini, Affred Sorby, Tino Elo, Ausha, Keasi, Virginia Elo, Lavenia and Siteri."

He said the final would be a replay of the pool game where Raiwaqa White beat USP 3-1.

"Raiwaqa White has been the form team of the USPTA league and go into the finals as favourites.

"USP will go in as underdogs and will really have to dig deep to ascertain some ascendancy in this finals match-up."
