Navy rugby captain Sevanaia Koroi says they are confident of beating Polices in tomorrow’s final of the Escott Shield.

Speaking to SUNsports, the 38-year-old said after losing last year’s final to the Blues they are determined to take their revenge at Albert Park in Suva.

Heading into his last Escott Shield final, the former Vodafone Fijian Bati centre says, the game will be dedicated to all ex-naval officers who have recently retired.

“The thrashing we received last year has made us more determined to take our revenge,” Koroi reiterated.

“For us this is a pre-Sukuna Bowl clash and the team is very much looking forward to it.

“We have been preparing for this match for the entire year and I keep reminding the boys to follow their dreams. The Fiji Navy has made so many achievements throughout the year like our first batch of female officers and a win will just be an icing on the cake.”

Blues coach Solomone Nute said they know it would be a tough battle but they have also come prepared.

Suva Rugby Union (SRU) secretary Paula Raqeukai is inviting club fans, families and ex-players to come out in numbers for the grand final.

“This final is the pinnacle of the SRU and it is the strong, professional and passion of rugby in the capital city club games that contributes to the overall success of the Suva premier team during the Skipper Cup 2018.”

The match kicks-off at 12pm.
