“The grand finals this year are expected to be stronger than anything that is seen in the past,” Leahy said.

He said the open grounds would be a big boost to all teams.

“Our teams are really working out things and they are very physical in an open space,” he said.

“We are also expecting it to be a fast game and a high scoring game as well. It should be a really good game to watch.

“Players that will come through to the grand finals this weekend are those that have gone through the U15 Fiji Day Cup and representing Fiji in the Oceania Cup in our fifteen grade and are now few years older.

“We have been going out to schools and teaching the young ones more about the game and we have been receiving positives feedback from them,” he added.
