The side defeated John Wesley College 23-12 in the quarterfinal last weekend

School principal Setareki Mereku­la said this is the business end of the competition and they are lifting the tempo at training.

“We are putting in the extra effort in preparing for the game as the match against RKS will be a tough one,” Merekula said

“RKS showed what they are capa­ble of in the 46-0 thrashing of Nas­inu Secondary in the quarterfinal last week.

“It will be an uphill battle and we are working very hard in giving RKS a good game.

“Definitely we are going in to give our best and the intention is to win and to show that we also play rugby in the west.

“We respect them for what they are- a very good and a strong team-but we will try and step up and defy the odds.

“When the dust settles at Laucala on Saturday, there will be one win­ner and we are optimistic.”

Merekula urges all Ratu Navula fans to turn up in numbers on Sat­urday to cheer for the team
