Nadi Avi­a­tors have been crowned FNRL Voda­fone In­ter-Zone Com­pe­ti­tion cham­pi­ons after edg­ing out Suva Eagles 38-30 at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori yes­ter­day. Nadi Rugby League pres­i­dent, Joe Gray has is­sued a chal­lenge to the Fiji Res­i­dents team to take them on. “We are on the top and we will re­main on the top,” he said. “We have won the Un­der-20. We have won the Su­per Premier what more. My only mes­sage is for the se­lec­tion of the Fiji Res­i­dence side, if it can be done more trans­par­ently and I think our boys have proved them­selves to­day. Nadi would in­vite the Fiji Res­i­dents team to come down for a chal­lenge match with the Nadi Avi­a­tors. We will put $1000 on the table and the win­ner takes all.” Gray said the win was ex­pected as they had worked hard for it. “We want to glo­rify God. Nadi Avi­a­tors are a hum­ble team. We kept our­selves hum­ble we kept our com­po­sure we knew what Suva was go­ing to come with. For the boys they were even more mo­ti­vated to find that there were seven Res­i­dents reps that opted to play for Suva in­stead for Fiji and that really boosted their moral which I salute them for.” Grey added that the team had a huge sup­port sys­tem back­ing them up.
