ANOTHER Cirikisuva has stamped his mark in the Coke Zero Secondary Schools Deans competition.

Marist Brothers High School under- 16 fullback Mitieli Cirikisuva is closely following in the footsteps of his elder brother and former MBHS head boy and former Fiji U20 flanker Jese Cirikisuva.

The stylish fullback who scored two tries in a nail-biting final has set his focus on donning the famous white shirt in the near future.

Cirikisuva was in top form at fullback to help his team defeat Natabua 16-7. He commended his teammates for their achievement in defending the U16 title.

"Firstly I am honoured to be named the best player and I thank my teammates for helping me to score two tries," said Mitieli.

"My aim is to follow in the footsteps of my brother and to play for the country in the near future.

"Most importantly I thank my teammates for their hard work enabling us to defend the title."

Mitieli also thanked the host team for a tough encounter.

"Natabua gave us a very tough game," he said.

"They pressurised us until the last whistle but I thank our boys for standing the ground tall in defence and to win the title."
