RKS prefers underdog tag

RATU Kadavulevu School is wary of the Lelean Memorial School prowess and has taken the underdogs tag as they prepare for the Coke Zero Deans under-18 final today.

With five of their key players currently with the national under-18 7s team at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, RKS will be using their backup players for the match.

RKS board chairman Alipate Naiorosui said the replacement players would need to lift the intensity of the game to match the Lelean pack.

"We respect Lelean and we know they are a good side," he said.

"So for us, we would need to lift our game to their level because the reality is, with five of our players gone that's one third of the team, we are now the underdogs since we are an under strength side.

"We will still go there and give a good match. One that would be remembered by both Lelean and the spectators."

He also called on all RKS fans to flock to the venue to cheer for the side during the game at Churchill Park in Lautoka.
