A new champion will be crowned in the Jack’s Nadi Rugby super division final at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on Sep­tember 29.

This was after defending champions Nawaka bundled out in the Cup quarterfinal losing 28-21 to Dratabu last Saturday.

Dratabu proved strong complimented with the services of former Malolo skipper Veniona Vuki, Olympians Samisoni Viriviri and Kitione Taliga.

The side will face the Viliame Tui- captained Army side in the first semi-final this Saturday while Eparama Naresia captained Western Ma­rine take on Saunaka led by Atama Susu.

“A new champ will be crowned after the Drata­bu team defeated last year’s champ Nawaka,” competition co-ordinator Jeff Tamata said.

“A good crowd went through the gates and the standard was way up high compared to previous years.

“This Saturday we are expecting similar turn­out due to the awesome standard of rugby dis­played by all the teams last weekend.”
