DEFENDING champions Raiwai Gold is on track to defend its title at the National Easter Volleyball Championships.

The side recorded victories over Security Forces and Raiwaqa I at the FMF Gymnasium yesterday.

Competition official Kenneth Lidise said Raiwai Gold would play Ba I today and the result of the match would determine their position in their pool.

Raiwai's biggest threat Digicel Bula FM Suva are also on track for a spot in the final with three wins.

They beat Nasinu I, Vatuwaqa III and Raiwai II respectively in their pool matches.

"Digicel Bula FM Suva is a consistent side and they look really good in their matches," Lidise said.

"They are playing well and their overall performance seems like they are one of the top contenders."

He said Raiwai Gold needed to work harder as they would face some difficult opponents in the elimination rounds.

"Its too early to tell, they still have one more match left and we will see what happens tomorrow (today).

"But the real test will come in the eliminations round which starts on Saturday morning and there we will know which teams can make it to the finals."

The women's competition begins today.
