RATU Navula College will need to defeat Natabua High School in the West Zone Two Secondary Schools Rugby Union under-18 final to earn the right to defend the Deans Trophy which they won for the first time last year.

West Zone Two has only one slot for the U18 national quarter-finals after losing its second spot in the promotion-relegation in 2012.

This will make tomorrow's final at Churchill Park very interesting. The Voravora Cup will also be at stake which is held by Ratu Navula.

West Zone Two patron Lorima Voravora said the battle for Western supremacy would be first.

"After the dust settles at Churchill Park, whichever team that holds the Voravora Cup will be in the running for the Deans Trophy from the national quarter-finals," he said.

"Deans Trophy champion Ratu Navula which is also the holder of the Voravora Cup will have to defend it with their lives from challenger Natabua.

"This is because they know that if they lose then they will forfeit the right to defend the Deans Trophy. Natabua has also done their preparations according to plan which they will unleash in the final."

Tomorrow's finals kick off at 8am.

Admission fees will be $5 (Pavilion A and B), $3 (Pavilion C and Embankment), $1 (Students in uniform), free (Children U12).
