STIFF competition is expected during the Suva Touch Association quarter-finals today.

New winners would be crowned at the end of the competition since the competition is in its first year and association president Charles Cleary said all teams would want to stamp their mark.

"Bombers and Flyers White have shown from the start of the season that they are champion teams and they would want to prove that to everyone this Saturday (today) but this is the quarter-finals and anything can happen on the day," he said.

"First Touch, Davui, Super Touch, JNG Stallions, Roosters are all capable to cause upsets in the quarter-final in both the men and mixed categories."

Cleary said the nine weeks of training and round robin competition had resulted in teams improving their game.

"The level of touch rugby has gone up a notch as shown by our touch players from various clubs after the international tournament in Nadi last year.

"The international tournament gave our Fiji touch players exposure and experience, so this will be what they will bring to quarter-finals this Saturday (today).
