THE Ratu Kadavulevu School (RKS) under-18 team has become a first Fiji school to win the Sanix World Youth Tournament in Japan on Saturday. The side defeated Hastings Boys High School of New Zealand 35-5 in the final to win their first Sanix World Youth title.
Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union secretary Biu Colati said the win was not only for RKS, but for all the secondary schools in Fiji.
“RKS has created a piece of history for Fiji after winning the tournament and it has not come as a surprise as they have worked hard to achieve the win,” Colati said.
“The team prepared well for the competition and had their record intact since they are the champion in Fiji at the moment. “It is a good result because that shows the standard of our competition and the competition over there. “Being crowned the winner in Japan and in Fiji, it can be said that our competition is very high.”
The Lodoni-based school led 14-0 at half time.
“The win belongs to all secondary schools in Fiji and they had a hand in the win in terms of moulding the players to what they have achieved today,” he said.
“RKS has made Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union proud of their achievement as it is for all the players who play rugby in Fiji.”
