Nadi’s Skipper Cup win this year has boosted Ratu Na­vula College to continue working hard for the Vodafone Deans Under-18 trophy.

Despite their 13-8 loss to Natabua High School at Churchill Park, Lau­toka, last Saturday, captain Sivanio­lo Sigadrodro said they have shifted their focus to this week’s game.

The Nasivikoso, Magodro, Ba, na­tive who shares maternal links to Wauosi, Navosa said they could only get better.

“We did not play according to our game plan,” Sigadrodro said.

“We lacked in so many things that we were told during training by our coaches to execute,” he said.

“We have put all that behind, we need to shake that off, put that aside and focus on our next set of games.

“Nadi winning the Fiji Rugby Un­ion Skipper Cup, is a boost to our side.

“It has pushed us to work harder and keep to the plan, the plan is to win the secondary schools Deans trophy.”

Sigadrodro, 17, has set his focus on donning the national jumper in future.

“I know I have a long way to go,” he said.

“If I keep doing the little things right, it will get me somewhere in rugby.

“It is all about doing well some of the specific things required for my position.

“I always look up to Nadroga Num­ber 8, Joji Kunavula and Flying Fi­jians Albert Tuisue for that as they are very skillful players.”
