Navosa reveals secret

THEIR rise to stardom surprised many. But behind every success story there is a secret.

The history-making Navosa Central College under-19 rugby league team has revealed one of its secret ahead of its duel with Ba Provincial Freebird Institute in the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League finals at Lawaqa Park tomorrow.

The hillboys are using modern technology to sustain their campaign in the knockout stages of the competition.

After the quarter-finals where they dethroned Assemblies of God High School, the Jone Vosataki-coached side reviewed its video footage before coming in full force against Marist Brothers High School in the semi-finals.

Navosa edged the boys from Flagstaff 18-16, putting on a strong comeback in the later stages of the game.

Vosataki said reviewing the game of the quarter-final footage was vital and it materialised against MBHS at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori last weekend.

"We will go now and review the footage of this game," he said after the semi-final victory.

"We reviewed our quarter-final game and it really helped the boys to lift their game to another level in the semi-final."

However, Vosataki said they were again exposed against MBHS.

"We committed a lot of errors again in the semi-final and we will again review the footage.

"We lacked concentration after having a good start and also we did not really utilise our six balls when in possession."

He said the final against Ba Provincial would be a clash of the unknown.

Ba Provincial was the West Zone winner while Navosa was the top seeded team from the Baravi Zone.

"It will be a good game in the final. We'll just go back and get the basics right before coming again in full force in the final."

Vosataki urged the Navosa supporters to come out in numbers and support his troops as they march into their first ever secondary school final tomorrow.
