Rain stops schools rugby

THE organisers of the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League competition will have meetings in respective zones to confirm if they need to play mid-week games.

Bad weather all over the country have forced the organisers to cancel today's games but there is still no word on when the deferred games will be held.

Southern Zone Secondary Schools Rugby League official Biu Colati said the players could injure themselves if they play on wet and muddy fields.

"So we made a decision late yesterday afternoon (Thursday) to call off tomorrow's (today's) games," he said.

"We are going to have a meeting to decide how we can have games because we have a schedule to follow and a deadline to meet."

Colati said one option is mid-week games on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

"We could have the under-19 games in the middle of the week and the rest in the weekend.

"But that is still to be decided and we will let the schools know after the meeting."

Nadroga/Navosa Secondary School Rugby League Association secretary Meshar Ali echoed similar sentiments.

"We normally play our games at Lawaqa Park but the bad weather and heavy rain caused a lot of flooding and Lawaqa Park was not spared," he said.

"So we have postponed tomorrow's (today's) games and we will have a meeting on Tuesday to decide whether to play mid-week games."
