COASTLINE Titans will be boosted with the services of four national under-19 players in their FNRL quarter-final battle against Sakiusa Gavidi's Kulukulu Rabbitohs at the Kalevu ground in Sigatoka this afternoon.

Upcoming rugby league star Jone Waqaliva will team up with fellow national schoolboys teammates Jo Raboiliku, Nemia Ratu and Savenaca Vunibola in their quest to qualify for the Nadroga Zone semi-finals.

Waqaliva is expected to be at his usual best after his standout performance throughout the competition has caught the attention of some NRL clubs.

"Waqaliva, who is expected to secure a rugby league contract in Australia, will be the player to watch in the quarter-final," said Nadroga development officer Suliasi Cakautabu.

Meanwhile, in another interesting feature, Samu Kunanitu's Raiwaqa Knights will battle against Korolevu Ruggers.

The Knights was in top form during the competition to claim the top spot for the Nadroga Zone points table standing.

Cakautabu, however, said it would be a tough game for the Knights as Korolevu also wanted to advance to the semi-finals.

Outrigger on the Lagooon Knights will rub shoulders with Yanuca Cowboys in the third quarter-final while the Namatakula Tigers face Baravi Eeels in the last elimination game.
