Lelean Memorial School captain Eroni Mawi looks confident for the tough challenge against NewNet Ratu Kadavulevu School in the Coke Zero Deans Under-18 final on Saturday at Churchill Park, Lautoka.

The Tovu, Totoya, Lau, native, said even though RKS had lost five key players who travelled to China for the Youth Olympic Games, they would still be hard to beat.

“There will be a lot of challenges and we expect a very tough game from RKS. They will also be out to give us a good run,” Mawi said.

“Saturday’s clash will be tougher than the semifinal because this is another level of competition. It will be a tough game.

“The match will be interesting and we are urging all fans to come out in numbers,” he said.

Sponsors Coca-Cola Amatil Fiji and its marketing manager, Lawrence Tikaram congratulated all teams in grade finals and said they would continue to help grassroots rugby.

“As sponsors, we will continue to engage with secondary schools rugby and also Fijians know this is development towards a national team,” he said.

“We are as passionate of this Deans final as this is the pinnacle of secondary schools rugby.”

FSSRU president Napolioni Silatolu acknowledged the sponsors and developments taking place in the tournament.

“We have seen a lot of changes in terms of development and we wish all teams the best of luck,” Silatolu said.
