Eastern Zone aims high for next year's competition

THE Eastern zone is hungry for another spot in the Tier One Deans competition next year.

Despite having four teams in the national finals, the officials are rallying behind its Tier Two teams to force their way into the top division.

The zone has already added the West Zone Two second spot to their number of teams playing in the national playoffs, initially only three Eastern teams made it the national finals.

Sila Central High School under-18 team is the zone's representative in the Tier Two division. The Nausori-based school has booked a spot in the Tier Two final against Natabua High School.

A win over Natabua sets up a promotion relegation match against either Navuso Methodist High School (which is from the Eastern zone) or Suva Grammar School (Southern zone) - the bottom placed teams from the Tier One division.

If Navuso loses its playoff match against Suva Grammar School next week, the Eastern zone's Deans fourth spot is in danger.

In this scenario, Sila Central has to win the Tier Two final to maintain the Eastern spot.

Otherwise, if Navuso wins and Sila Central wins, five Eastern teams will be represented in the national final.

Zone vice-president development Maika Saqatanaivalu said they wanted another spot.

"We're throwing our support on Navuso so they can keep our number four spot," he said.

"And also we're hoping that Sila Central will win the Tier Two competition and also the promotion relegation match so that we will have a fifth team in the national finals.

"A win for both Navuso and Sila Central puts us in a good position to win a fifth spot in the Tier One national finals."

He wished both sides a good outing next week.
