QUEEN Victoria School continued its dominance in secondary school rugby after five of its six teams that featured in the semi-finals on Saturday progressed to the grand final of the Fiji Secondary School Deans competition on August 20.

The Victorians U14, U15, U17, U18 and U19 sides will fly the prominent sky blue colours of QVS in the final.

The U14 set the platform for the Matavatucou campaign with a convincing 17-7 victory over Natabua High School.

The U15 continued to sing the Vulinitu song after edging Ratu Navula College 12-10 while the Victorian U16 side failed to revenge their Deans final loss to Ratu Navula last year. QVS lost 8-15.

However the QVS U17 pack proved to be a force to reckon after humiliating Nasinu Secondary School 29-10.

The U19 dumped Nabua Secondary School 24-12 while the U18 kept their hopes of winning the first ever Deans U18 competition.

QVS ended Lelean Memorial School's winning run with a 15-3 triumph. Lelean had been the powerhouse of secondary school after the introduction of the rugby academy.

However QVS played to the final minute to end Lelean's reign from 2008 to 2010.

The Matavatucou boys will face a strong challenge from Ratu Navula in the final.

Ratu Navula hammered Ratukadavulevu School 17-0 in the semifinals on Saturday.
