Freshe’t Navy captain Jitoko Usumaki believes discipline is one key area they would need to watch against Police Blues

The teams clash in the 2017 Suva Rugby Union Escott Shield final at Albert Park at 12pm tomorrow.

“We cannot afford to givea way penalties against a strong team like Police Blues. We respect Police Blues and we are looking forward to a good game,” Usumaki said.

Police captain Jone Delana said they were aware of Navy strength.

“They have very strong and experienced backline players, fast and we need to match that. We will stick to our plan and play our style.

“The last time we won the Escott Shield was 2014 so we will give Navy a good run for their money,” Delana said.
