Blue coach Tevita Fifita said yesterday they are heading into one of their toughest games so they would be taking it as a final.

Fifita said the team’s preparation is still the same despite taking a month’s break from the competition.

“We will not take this game lightly,” Fifita said.

“There will be a lot of pressure on us as defending champions so it is up to us and how we handle the pressure.

“Most of our overseas-based players have returned to their clubs but we still have Sanaila Radevuka with the team.”

In other Escott Shield matches QVSOB beat Nabua 30-21, RKSOB thumped USP 39-21 while Raiwaqa Whites won by default against Harlequins and Savura also had a walkover against Marist.
