New champions

NASINU Secondary School reclaimed the Bati Tanoa in the Southern Zone Secondary Schools rugby league competition.

They thrashed John Wesley College 24-4 yesterday at the Veiuto Primary School grounds in Suva to once again grasp the under-19 title that they held for the whole of last season.

Nasinu were the holders of the Bati Tanoa at the start of the season but lost it to Assemblies of God High School early in the competition.

A week later, Assemblies lost the title to John Wesley in a 2-11 upset.

Yesterday captain Kaveni Dabenaisi once again led by example and made his kicks count for Nasinu.

The pool B title also changed hands when Marist Brothers High School beat holders Lomaivuna Secondary School 22-8.

Competition official Biu Colati said this was the first time ever that Marist had won the U19 title in rugby league.

"But the match that stole the show was between Nasinu and JWC," he said.

"Nasinu were hungry to win back the title and on the field — when it counted the most, they proved too strong for JWC."

Meanwhile, Colati was upset at the number of matches lost or won by defaults.

Six matches were defaulted yesterday.

"For the under-15 grade, Nabua Secondary School had pulled out after the first round.

"So that means they will continue to be included in the draws and whoever is slated to face them will win by default.

"But as for the other teams, I don't know why they are not turning up for the competition."
