Maciu Malo

RA High School is optimistic of creating history in the Fiji secondary schools rugby league competition this weekend.

Flying high after their unbeaten run in the Tavua Ra zone, the side is confident of defeating Southern giants Marist Brothers High School in the under-19 quarter-final.

Team manager Noa Cakau said his boys were eager to showcase their talent against the Flagstaff boys.

He said the boys had been urged to play their hearts out for the school and the people of Ra.

"This team is vanua-based, and the support from the people of Ra will inspire the players to beat Marist.

"We know that Marist is one of the top teams but I have faith in our players that they will surprise their opponents.

"The players have been told to maintain their unbeaten record from the zone meet.

"And looking at the previous performances and training, I am confident the side will defeat Marist in the quarter-final."

Cakau said beating Marist would be a tough assignment for his troops but the boys were banking on their fitness and guts to deny their opponents the win.
