Natabua aims for Tier One spot

THE Natabua High School under-18 side has an aim to retain its Tier One spot next season.

After winning its Tier Two semi-final against Assemblies of God High School 19-3 yesterday, the side is focused on winning a spot in the Tier One for its younger brothers.

Natabua is one of the schools from the west zone two secondary school rugby competition. The zone lost its second spot to the Eastern Zone for the past two years.

It has given them a hard time trying to overcome giant Ratu Navula College in the U18 category.

And after the win over AOGHS, the team is optimistic of achieving its goal.

Lanky number eight Kitione Kamikamica said they wanted to win back the spot for their future Natabua brothers.

"Our aim right now is to be in the Tier One again next year," Kamikamica who was named as man of the match against AOGHS told Times Sport.

"It's been a bit unfair to us. We really wanted to win the spot back from the Eastern Zone so that our young brothers who are coming up the rank can represent Natabua again in the Tier One competition."

The Vanua Levu lad said he was not expecting to be named as the man of the match recipient.

"I just came into the game with the thought of giving my best for the school and the boys. I thank the Almighty for giving me the strength today (yesterday)."

Kamikamica acknowledged the parents, old scholars and fans for their support.
