BA Provincial Freebird Institute is confident of beating Navosa Central College in the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools rugby league under-19 final at Lawaqa Park this afternoon.

And boosting the morale of the players was the handing over of their new outfit by sponsors Vodafone Fiji.

Team manager Ilaitia Tuinavitilevu said the players knew the significance of the game and they were eager to prove their worth in the final.

He said the side fell short in last year's U18 final and would be out to make amends this afternoon.

"This is a do-or-die situation for the team and we are confident of bringing the trophy to the West," said Tuinavitilevu.

"The boys have prepared well for the final and we will do all it takes to win the final.

"This final is special to the school and the huge morale booster today is the handing over of the new rugby jerseys."

Tuinavitilevu has called on the people of Ba and the former students of Ba Provincial to turn out in huge numbers and support the side.

He said the side would not underestimate their opponents knowing the highlanders would also be hungry for a win.

"We respect Navosa and we also expect to the tough competition."

"But again we have fought hard to reach this far and we will make sure to lift the trophy to our school" he added.

In other matches today, Ratu Navula will face Nasinu in the U15 and U17 respectively.
