Navosa Central set to repeat rugby league feat

THE Navosa Central College under-19 side will be a force to reckon with at tomorrow's Coke Zero Deans quarter-finals.

The side which surprisingly reached the finals of the Fiji National Rugby League secondary schools final in its debut season this year has turned to the 15-man code to try and create another chapter of the history book.

Navosa plays Wainimala Secondary School in the Tier Two quarter-finals after winning the Nadroga/Navosa Baravi zone.

With the same core of players that shocked the rugby league fans earlier this year, the side will be hoping to maintain its reputation in the full code.

"They're the same team that won our rugby league zone and then went on to reach the finals of the national rugby league finals," Meshar Ali, the Nadroga Navosa Zone official said.

"They have been playing together and it will be interesting to watch how they will fare against Wainimala in rugby union."

He said the challenge for Navosa Central was to repeat its rugby league performance this weekend.

"They have proven their worth in rugby league despite making their first ever appearance in the competition so we're expecting a similar outcome."

Navosa Central takes on Wainimala at 2.20pm at the Marist Brothers High School grounds.
