The Po­lice rugby side will take up the chal­lenge of fac­ing Army in this Satur­day’s R.C Manub­hai Suva Rugby Union’s Es­cott Shield semi-fi­nal show­down.

This was af­ter Po­lice up­set last year’s cham­pi­ons Navy 23-14 in their quar­ter fi­nal battle last Satur­day. Po­lice coach Solo Nute said they had ex­pected a win over Navy and are now look­ing for­ward to the next chal­lenge against Army. “We ex­pected to come out vic­tors at the end of the Navy game, we have been train­ing hard,” Nute said. “We are re­tain­ing some of the Suva play­ers that have just fin­ished off from the Fare­brother chal­lenge and we were for­tu­nate to have used them against Navy.” Nute said de­spite the win they would have to fo­cus on their next game if they wish to move for­ward. “Af­ter the Navy game we have come up with so many weak­nesses. In or­der for us to change our game plans and struc­ture against Army, we first need to work on our weak­nesses. We will try to get our struc­ture right, we will con­trol our set piece and we can come out vic­to­ri­ous.” Nute said Po­lice would be tak­ing their chances against Army keep­ing in mind all their sup­port­ers who have been behind them through­out the com­pe­ti­tion. “We want to thank our sup­port­ers and the com­mis­sioner of po­lice who is with us. We thank all po­lice of­fi­cers who are work­ing through­out Fiji- this win over Navy is ded­i­cated to them and their fam­i­lies.”
