Vaiala in box seat for final Apia Union round

BBE Vaiala Ulalei look set to sew up both the Under 20 and Senior A division overall championships in the Apia Rugby Union competition's final round this weekend.

Vaiala's Senior A side have lost just one game this season, when they surrendered the Shield to AST SCOPA.

They lead Taumeasina Island Resort Moata'a, Apia Maroons and Lupeolesoaga, who have each suffered two losses this year.

Vaiala will play the team from Magiagi on Saturday, with a win ensuring the title is theirs.

A Lupeolesoaga win would see the championship decided by points difference.

In the last game of the day, Moata'a will attempt to defend the Shield against SSAB Moamoa.

Meanwhile in the Under 20 division, Vaiala will enter their Trophy match against Moamoa undefeated.

They will be looking to secure the Trophy, as well as take out the overall championship with a win.
