RATU Navula College is chasing another piece of history in the Fiji secondary schools sporting scene.

Inspired by the fate of the school's under-18 rugby team on wining the iconic Deans trophy for the first time last year, their rugby league brothers are just one step away from creating another chapter in the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools rugby league competition.

The school will be represented in the U15 and U17 finals against their counterparts from Nasinu Secondary School at Lawaqa Park today.

Team official Sandeep Sharma said the hope of the school rested on the shoulders of their gallant warriors.

He said the team management had faith in their players to deliver against Nasinu.

Sharma said both teams would want to end their unbeaten run on a high note.

"Both our teams have been unbeaten so far this season and the players have been urged to give their all in the final," he said.

"This is a last hurdle for the boys and we will do our best to make our school proud."

Sharma said Nasinu would be a tough nut to crack in the final and their players have been urged not to underestimate their opponents.

"Nasinu will also be eyeing a win and it will be interesting to witness the rivalry between the two teams," said Sharma.
