LELEAN Memorial School and Queen Victoria School will battle it out for a spot in the Eastern Zone Secondary Schools rugby finals scheduled to be played in two weeks’ time.

The zone semi-finals will be played on July 7 and the finalists will qualify to the Powerade Super Deans rugby competition.

Eastern zone president Solomone Seru said the competition was intensifying between the eastern schools.

“The schools have shown tremendous performance aiming to participate in the Deans quarter finals and the competition is getting tougher,” Seru said.

Lelean Memorial School U18 rugby team defeated Queen Victoria School 21-10 in the last round robin matches of the Eastern Zone Secondary Schools Rugby competition at Ratu Cakobau Park last Saturday.

Lelean dominated the first half of the match scoring two converted tries and was awarded a penalty try while QVS tried to close the gap in the second spell but time wasn’t on their side.
