SCHOOLS from the Nadroga/Navosa Zone are eager to prove their worth at the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League quarter-finals today.

With prominent professional rugby league players such as Noa Nadruku, Lote Tuqiri, Akuila Uate and Alipate Tani being products of the area, the zone is optimistic of unleashing more talent at Nadi's Prince Charles Park.

Cuvu College will represent the zone in the under-15 grade against Nasinu Secondary School while Sigatoka Methodist tackles Nasinu in one of the U17 quarter-finals.

Navosa Central College battles Assemblies of God High School in the U19 grade.

Zone secretary Meshar Ali said they wanted to prove their worth against other schools.

Meanwhile, in the feature match of the U19 grade, champions Nasinu takes on Ba Provincial while Ra High tackles last year's finalist Marist Brothers High School. Western giant Natabua plays Lelean Memorial School in the first quarter-final match.

The first U15 quarter-final match between Cuvu College and Nasinu kicks off at 8.30am.
