THE Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League (FSSRL) national play-offs will be held this weekend in the western division.

Fiji National Rugby League operations manager Rusiate Ratakele said due to the recent floods in the western division and the rainy weather all over the country, the national play-offs and other games had to be postponed.

So today, the under 18 competition will see the Lelean face Nabua and Lomary square off with Nakasi at Bidesi and Buckhurst Park respectively at 3pm today.

Tomorrow, John Wesley will host Lelean in the under 15 competition.

"These three games will determine the reps from these grades for the national play-offs," Ratakele said. "The national play-offs will be held in the western division but the actual venue of the competition is yet to be finalised," he said.

He said as a result of the postponement, the semi-finals and the grand final dates had to be rescheduled as well.

"The grand final was scheduled for April 21 but the semi-finals will be played on that date now and the grand final will be played on Thursday, April 26."

"We had to take into consideration the schools affected by the recent floods in the western division before coming to this decision," Ratakele said.
