THE Island Electric Lautoka Crushers will not let their emotions run high when they face the Pacific Energy Kinoya Sea Eagles in the Vodafone Cup premier division semi-final at Churchill Park tomorrow.

A win will earn the Crushers a spot in the Top 8 competition next year.

The Crushers have never met the Sea Eagles before but are wary of the challenge from the southerners.

In form second rower Simeli Ravula will be the player to look out for in the Lautoka-based team.

Crushers mentor Mesake Navugona said the side was injury free.

Navugona said the last time a club from Lautoka won the grand final was back in 2000.

"We have been building this team for some time," he said.

"It is time that the boys step up and deliver the goods. A win against the Sea Eagles will secure us a spot in the Top 8 and the ultimate aim is get there and claim that title.

"We are thankful to our sponsor for supporting us throughout the season."

The Vodafone Cup semi-finals get underway at 8am with the reserve grade between Dee Cees Nadera Panthers and KBL Saru Dragons. In the other match, Tifa Jek Hot Springs Sabeto Roosters takes on Pack Leader Nabua Broncos at 9.25am.

The premier clash between the Crushers and the Sea Eagles starts at 10.50am followed by Tuwalu Tigers against Nadi Eels at 12.20pm.

The Top 8 clash starts at 1.50pm with Tifa Jek Hot Springs Sabeto Roosters taking on Fair Trade Makoi Bulldogs followed by the Dragons against the Panthers at 3.20pm.
