THE Committee and schools from the Eastern Secondary School Zone have reached a unanimous decision for Tailevu-based all-boys Queen Victoria School not to host any more games for the rest of the season.

This was confirmed by Eastern Secondary School Zone Committee president Solomoni Seru in an interview with The Fiji Times yesterday.

The decision was reached after a meeting between the committee and the representatives from each school on Monday this week.

This followed a brawl that had broken out after a match between visiting Lelean Memorial School and QVS last Friday.

Mr Seru said the safety of all children was paramount to the committee.

“If any incidents of the same nature were to occur again, the Eastern Zone committee will step in and we will work according to the laws and we will take action if these laws are not followed,” he said.

“The students and spectators need to learn from this incident, both students who are playing and spectators have a responsibility to follow these laws.”

The Eastern Zone rugby competitions are expected to end next month.
