THE Viria Blues rugby side is confident of defending the Sautu Trophy in the Naitasiri North Bulls clubs competition today.

The KKBL-sponsored side faces Seniyasi in the challenge match at the Naluwai ground in Vunidawa.

Team manager Filipe Vulaono said they wanted to prove a point and they were determined in their ambition to be the top side in the competition.

"We have won five challenge matches already and this will be the last," he said.

"It's $100 for winning each challenge so we have won $500 and that was the income for the players for their hard work.

"The side is made up of school dropouts and unemployed youths from the village (Viria) and this was the only source of income for the players."

Vulaono said the side was fuelled by the support from the vanua and their sponsors.

"We would like to thank the mataqali and the people of the village for their support and also like to thank KKBL and Tau Sports for their sponsorship.

"The team has reached this far thanks to their support and we want to return the favour by winning the last challenge match."
