TITLEHOLDERS in the Suva Volleyball Association would make a final attempt to retain their respective titles as the competition comes to an end today.

Marist, who managed to win back the Super Premier title are brimming with confidence ahead of the final day of competition while new Premier champions, Highways would be banking on its unknown players to help them keep the title.

Brewers from Vatuwaqa would aim to retain the women's title that they won from Delta two weeks ago in the Digicel Suva Volleyball League.

Association secretary Samuela Rabuku said the three title holders would face stiff competition.

"With back to back wins from last week, Marist is going in confident this last round against Drifters and Mighty Heights to retain the title," he said.

"Marist consists of current national beach volleyball reps Qilu Elliot and Epeli Ratabacaca who will be crucial in assisting Marist to retain the title."

Rabuku said the Premier title would be on the line three times tomorrow.

"Newcomers, Highways from Laqere which is coached by Qilu Elliot, managed to finally topple Tamavua Bulls 3-2 in the Premier grade last week.

"Highways will face tough challenges from P-Brothers, Gamblers and Tamavua Bulls in this last round to retain the cup.

"Highways is a new team and has a lot of raw talent, it will be interesting to see who will be the team to take home the Premier title.

Former national rep Sereani Turova would be a key player for Brewers against Reef in the women's challenge match.

"The women's grade has seen the younger and energetic Vatuwaqa Brewers win against Highlanders last week in 3-1 sets to retain the title.

"Today they will face Reef led by Torika Nuku and Brewer's captain Sereani Turova would be looking to retain the title in this last round."
