CUVU College will play their hearts out for their fallen brothers who died during a disastrous road accident in Nabou last weekend.

The side will face defending champion Ratu Kadavulevu School in tomorrow’s feature Powerade Super Deans U18 final at the ANZ Stadium.

School principal Navneet Mishra said the boys had been inspired by the death of the Ratu Navula College rugby supporters and would give their utmost best against the mighty Lodoni players.

He said the side would face an uphill battle against the in-form RKS outfit.

“The boys will dedicate the final to their fallen Ratu Navula brothers and former students who died in a road accident last weekend,” said Mishra.

“This is also an inspiration to the players knowing they will be up against the best team in the country. “It is also a historic day for the school since this is our first year to play in the Deans final.”

Mishra said the players would not only represent Cuvu but carried the hopes of the Nadroga and the western people.

“These boys have a lot on their plate as they will not only represent the school but Nadroga and the Western Division as a whole.”

“The boys are looking forward to the challenge and will be out for the best against the defending champion.”

Cuvu made its debut in the Deans competition in 2015 where it also reached the quarter-final.

The side also reached the quarter-final in 2016 and lost to RKS in last year’s semi-final.

The much anticipated clash kicks off at 4.40pm.

Full fixtures:
8.30am: U14 RKS – QVS, 9.50: U15 RKS- LMS, 11.20: U16 RKS QVS, 12.45pm: U17 LMS – QVS, 3: RKS – LMS, 4.40: Cuvu – RKS
