NATABUA High School under-18 is the Coke Zero Deans Tier Two champions.

The Sugar City-based school defeated Sila Central High School 25-3 in the final at Bidesi Park in Suva yesterday.

The win leaves Natabua a step away from clinching its spot in the Tier One competition next season.

A win over Navuso Methodist High School in the promotion relegation match next week will complete the team's mission.

"Our aim is to be back in the Tier One competition," team's coach Rupeni Caucau said after the game. We're happy with the win and we look forward to getting our spot back next year."

Natabua which is from the West Two Zone has lost its spot to the Eastern Zone for the past seasons.

However, the side will need to beat Navuso, the Eastern Zone representative in the promotion relegation match to reclaim their spot. Caucau said his troops played a grand game against Sila Central.

"I take my hat off to the players for a good game against Sila Central. It was a tough game but we managed to hold on and come out victorious at the end of the day."

Caucau, who is the namesake of former Flying Fijians winger and Auckland Blues flyer said they needed to regroup again before the match against Navuso.

"After our loss to Ratu Navula in the West Two final, the boys were a bit down but I have to convince them to fight hard and reclaim our Deans spot. We're on track now and we hope for a good outing."

Natabua led Sila Central 10-0 at the break.
