Top target for schools

THE Nadroga schools that will compete in today's Coke Zero Deans Trophy Tier Two quarter-finals want to be in the top division next season.

And winning the Tier Two finals is the prime objective for the three schools — Cuvu College, Sigatoka Andhra Sangam School and Navosa Central College.

Cuvu will feature in the under-15, U16 and U17 while Sigatoka Andhra competes in the U18 grade and Navosa Central will represent Nadroga in the U19 grade.

Cuvu College U15 team manager Eparama Rasolo said the objective was to compete in the Tier One division next year.

"All these teams coming from Nadroga have one goal, that is to compete in the Tier One next year," he said.

The three schools qualified from the Nadroga Navosa Zone.

"We're aligning our system under the development of Nadroga Rugby Union and they want a team to compete in the top tier next year.

"So every team is going with the mind-set of bringing a spot from the Tier One to our zone."

Cuvu U15 plays Saint John's Cawaci at 9.25am, while the U16 and U17 play Tailevu North at 10.35 and Queen Victoria School at 11.35 respectively.

"We're playing all Eastern schools which is going to be a tough battle for us."
