Monday, March 24, 2014

NAVOSA Central College is confident of upsetting Assembly of God High School in the Fiji Secondary School rugby league quarter-final this weekend.

The side will be banking on guts and determination to dethrone AOG in the under-19 grade.

Nadroga-Navosa secondary school rugby league vice president Apenisa Kurisaqila said the side had proven its worth during the zone weekly competition.

He said the players lacked the size compared with other teams in the tournament but they had the guts and the heart to defeat any opposition.

Kurisaqila said the side was eager to stamp its mark in this year's school rugby league competition.

"This is the first time for Nadroga-Navosa to play rugby league and I am confident the boys from the highlands will do the province proud," he said.

"We may lack the size but we have the guts and heart to conquer our opponents.

"The side is eager to battle against AOG and I am confident Navosa will cause one of the upsets this weekend."

Kurisaqila said joining Navosa in the national eliminations was the Cuvu U15 side.

The under-17 winner will be determined between Sigatoka Methodist School and Navosa Central later today.

Meanwhile, the West U19 teams for the national quarter-finals are Natabua and Ba Provincial (Lautoka Zone), Ra High School (Ra, Tavua zone) and Navosa Central for Nadroga Navosa zone.

The national quarter-finals will be held at Nadi's Prince Charles Park on Saturday.
