Natabua confident of a good outing

NATABUA High School under-16 rugby team is confident of a good semi-final outing against powerhouse RKS tomorrow.

Head coach Tevita Volavola Ratucadra said the players had been committed at training knowing they would be up against a very tough RKS outfit.

He said the players had been urged to give their best and to make the Natabua family proud.

"We are not in the semi-final to make up the numbers," said Ratucadra.

"The game is very important and we will do our best to make the school proud.

"The boys played in the tier two last year and they have been urged to make use of this opportunity.

"We respect RKS being one of the school rugby heavyweights."

Ratucadra said the side needed to lift its game after its narrow 13-12 win over Nasinu in last week's quarter-final.

"We need to improve on our weaknesses, especially in the set pieces.

"We cannot afford to commit mistakes against RKS and the boys are aware of it."

Natabua will be represented in the U14, U15, U16 and U17 while the U18 side will feature in the tier two semi-final.

The school's U14 and U15 teams will face-off with QVS respectively while the U17 will battle against Lelean.

The U18 side meets AOGHS in the tier two semi-final.
