THE Fiji Rugby Union B-Division competition winner will play in the Farebrother Sullivan Trophy Challenge competition before they move on to the promotion/relegation.

This was revealed during the Telecom-sponsored competition pool draws at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday.

The B Division competition started yesterday with 13 teams playing in the competition with the semi-finals scheduled for September 6 and the final on September 13.

On September 20, the B-Division winner will challenge for the HFC Farebrother Sullivan Trophy after which they play against Lautoka on September 27 in the promotion relegation.

Pool A competition will be played at Churchill Park in Lautoka between Ba, Malolo, Beqa and Yasawa while Pool B will be hosted by Tavua's Garvey Park between Colo North, Colo West and Ra.

At Ratu Cakobau Park the clash for Pool C will be among Rewa, Naitasiri Bulls, Serua and Kadavu while Pool D competition will be on a home-and-away basis at Ganilau Park, Nabouwalu and Subrail Park between Cakaudrove and Bua.

Telecom Fiji chief executive Mothilal de Silva said their sponsorship was to help improve the standard of the competition.

"We truly believe that the Telecom Fiji B Division competition will pave the way to uplift the standard of rugby in Fiji and groom players for national and international levels," he said.

"In the business sense, as the national Telecom operator, TFL has a greater opportunity to showcase its products and services through these sponsorships to a wider segment of the population and businesses across the nation."

Kadavu captain Ravuama Bola said his side was aiming to have three consecutive wins over Serua.

"We have beaten them for the past two years and we aim to do it again tomorrow (today)," he said.

Naitasiri Bulls captain Amani Bosenawai said they were anticipating a tough battle against Rewa at Ratu Cakobau Park.

"All matches would be tough, but we can win our pool," he said.
