THE Ovalau Kaji rugby under-14 team is satisfied with its performance the 2014 Galaxy Kaji rugby competition.

And despite losing 7-21 to defending champions Suva the boys from "Naova" have created another piece of history, reaching the finals of the U14 grade for the second time in three years.

The last time Ovalau featured in the final was in 2011 when the competition was played in Nadi.

On its way up to the final last week, Ovalau defeated Navosa 7-0 in the quarter-finals before edging Cakau East 13-7 in the semi-final.

And before running, into the field for the much anticipated final against Suva, Times Sport caught up with the team.

Ovalau coach Mateo Vianny said they were prepared for a shot at the main competition.

He said it was history for the young boys to feature in the final.

"This is new altogether for the boys," he said.

"It's the first time we're playing in the final after some time and we're happy with the achievements of the players."

The six Ovalau teams, all reached the eliminations stages. Vianny said this itself was a huge achievement by the whole team.

"All our teams, starting from U9 to U14 reached the elimination and we're proud of that. I believe we're satisfied with our achievement and we want to take it up to another level next year."
