ORGANISERS are expecting another classic battle between defending champions CBM and traditional rivals Lomaiviti when the two sides meet in the final of the Super grade in the Suva Netball Association today.

Games co=ordinator of the NewWorld-sponsored association, Tanya Vatubua put it right when she said it would be "pure competitiveness."

"These are two most respected clubs in the SNA competitions and they are the best of rivals so we are expecting CBM and Lomaiviti to come display the most competitive netball possible," she said.

Vatubua said they were not betting for or against any team in the match tomorrow at 3.45pm at the National Netball Centre.

"To be honest that is a tough call to make...we had our NewWorld Cup Challenge last week in which these two clubs played the finals and it was close and tough all the way to the final whistle.

"So we are expecting nothing less and cannot make a fair prediction yet. It's the team that plays with their head that will take the finals."

She said teams from Lomaiviti would feature in most of the finals — Minor, Development, Rookies, Major and Super.

"For the finals this year we have seen some old yet very strong clubs come up with explosive development players and teams to look out for across the board would be Lomaiviti which has about 90 per cent of teams in the finals.

"It will definitely be a challenge to all other clubs who will be meeting them in the finals."

Vatubua has called on netball fans to flock to the National Netball Centre to witness the tough competition that the clubs in the Capital City has to offer.
