Kerevi,Koroibete face-off in final

Fiji-born Wallabies centre Samu Kerevi will face Fijian winger Marika Koroibete as their Japanese club Suntory Sungoliath and Saitama Wild Knights meet in the Japan Rugby League One final next week.
 
This is after Kerevi's Suntory came from behind to beat Toshiba Brave Lupus 30-24 in the first semi-final and on Saturday, Saitama defeated Kubota Spears 24-10 in the second semi-final.
 
The results mean the arch-rivals will reprise last year's Top League final, which the Wild Knights won 31-26, to tie Suntory on five titles apiece from the 20-year duration of that competition.
 
Joining Kerevi on the Suntory playing staff is the former Queensland Reds' lock Harry Hockings.
 
To defend his team will be fellow Wallabies team mate Koroibete who joined this year, and veteran former Wallaby lock Dan Heenan.
 
The winner of the final will join returning Wallabies fly-half Quade Cooper's Kintetsu Liners in the top division next year.
