Nasinu out to reclaim the Bati Tanoa

FORMER holders Nasinu Secondary School will attempt to win back the Bati Tanoa when it faces current holders John Wesley College in the Southern Zone Secondary Schools Rugby League competition tomorrow.

Nasinu were the holders of the under-19 Pool A title at the start of the season but lost it to Assemblies of God High School early in the competition.

A week later, AOG High School lost the title to John Wesley in a 2-11 upset at the Veiuto Primary School grounds in Suva.

Zone competition official Biu Colati said he expected a tough encounter between Nasinu and John Wesley.

"Nasinu is not happy that they lost the title in the first place, so they will throw everything they have at John Wesley," he said.

"In Pool B, Marist Brothers High School will challenge for the Bati Tanoa that is being held by Lomaivuna Secondary School."

Colati said the under-17 clash between Assemblies of God and Suva Grammar School would be a good curtain-raiser to the two under-19 matches.

"AOG has a very strong squad and will be out to beat Grammar who have a fast backline.

"Also in the under-19 competition, Nabua Secondary School will play its second match in the competition against former Pool B Bati Tanoa holder Lomary Secondary School."

Meanwhile, no challenge match will be played in the Nadroga/Navosa Secondary Schools Rugby League Association under-19 competition. This is because Gavidi Cup holders Sigatoka Andhra Sangam College are on a bye for the competition at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.

Association secretary Meshar Ali said Nasikawa Vision Secondary School would face Cuvu College and Navosa Central College would take on Sigatoke Methodist High School in the two under-19 matches.

"All four schools have good teams and so it would be very hard to predict who will win in the matches," he said.
