Regent Breakthrough is adamant of a positive finish in the Suva Rugby Union Escott Shield’s competition.

This is the first year Regent Breakthrough has competed in the Escott Shield division and booked their spot in the Cup quarterfinal against Army at the ANZ Stadium on the Saturday.

Team captain Vatiliai Dulaki said they have been preparing well for their first Cup quarterfinal.

“We have high respect for Army not only the fact they are defending champions but they are traditional champions for Escott Shield,”Dulaki said.

“They have senior and experienced players who have been participating for the past years.

“For us we are preparing well too, we are preparing to win and that was our target this year.”
