The Tikiko Noke-captained Premier Logging Ra­voravo Rabbitohs will be chasing their second Snax Nadi Rugby League Cup title today.

The former Fiji Bati rep is adamant his side will upset the defending national champion, Tau Sports Sabeto Roosters in the premier final at the AFL ground in Nam­aka.

Noke said, “We are all geared up for the final. There is nothing new when the rugby league brothers meet. It will be a clash befitting a final.”

The Rabbitohs defeated Nadi Eels 18-12 in the final last year.

Roosters captain Roger Taylor said, “We are the nation­al champion while they are the Nadi zone champion and this will be an interesting clash.

“The boys have prepared very well. We have set the plat­form to continue from last year. We have to stick to our game plan and try our best to execute it. We are looking forward to play against our fellow brothers, Rabbitohs.”

Nadi Rugby League Association executive Don Natabe said the total prize-money of $18,600 is at stake for all the grades.

“This is a big event for the clubs and we are thankful to our major sponsor,” he said.

Meanwhile, the NSW Cup bid team will be present to live stream the final.
