SIGATOKA Andhra Sangam College proved critics wrong by winning the Gavidi Cup in the Nadroga/Navosa Secondary Schools Rugby League Association competition last weekend.

The competition kicked off at the weekend and Sigatoka Andhra beat Cuvu College 15-12 in the under-19 grade to take the title.

It was the first time schools in the province competed in the sport of rugby league, and association secretary Meshar Ali said there was a lot of interest from schools in the province and from parents and spectators.

"We had a good turnout at Lawaqa Park despite the bad weather conditions," he said.

"We had Sigatoka Methodist High School, Sigatoka Andhra, Cuvu College, Valley High School, Nasikawa Vision High School and the Nadroga/Navosa Provincial College.

"Also it was good to see some Fijians of Indian descent playing for their schools in the competition."

Ali said Nadroga Rugby Union assisted with the running of the games. He said the union also scouted for talent for their under-20 side and would also recommend some players to the Clermont Rugby Club in France.

"The Nadroga Rugby Union has partnered with the association to run the competition and we thank them for their support even though the two sports are considered rivals."

RESULTS:

U19: Gavidi Cup - Sigatoka Andhra 15 Cuvu College 12, Nasikawa Vision 12 Valley High 22.

U17: Kurusaqila Cup - Nasikawa 12 Nadroga/Navosa Provincial 22, Valley High 4 Cuvu College 22.
