The Vilive Aria-captained Army side will face Western Marine in the final of the Jack’s Nadi  Rugby Super Premier at Prince Charles Park this  Saturday.

This was after the soldiers upset Dratabu 24-22  in the semifinal yesterday.

Olympian   Samisoni Viriviri who played at first five-eight scored the first try for Dratabu.

Army captain Aria said they made a lot of mistakes and they will work on rectifying before the final.

It was a tough match but we have to play the full 80 minutes to get the win.  The boys did expect a tough challenge from Dratabu   as they were playing in front of their home crowd.”

Western Marine (Narewa) played with 14 men. In the other match, Western Marine (Narewa) played with only  14 men to defeat Saunaka 21-20 to progress to the final.

Western Marine started well but trailed Saunaka 11-15 at halftime. W/Marine had the services of Nete Caucau,  Orisi Erenavula, Viliame Rago while Savenaca  Tuole was handed a red carded for unprofessional play in the second spell. Saunaka had the services of Samuela Saqiwa, Inia Naqia, Sela Toga, and Skipper Atama  Susu.

In the Premier grade semifinal, Ravoravo (Sabeto)  beat  Police  29-13 in a mouthwatering clash while Airport edged Marni 20-19 in the dying moments of the match.
