WINNING their respective matches is critical for eight schools when they battle in the final round of the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League under-19 grade competition.
Nasinu Secondary, Marist Brothers High, Lomary Secondary, Suva Grammar, Lomaivuna, John Wesley, Laucala Bay Secondary and Assemblies of God High schools all have even chances of making the playoffs next week.
AOG tops Pool A followed by Nasinu, John Wesley and Laucala while Suva Grammar leads Pool B which has Lomaivuna, Marist and Lomary in contention for the top two spots.
Only the top two teams from each pool will qualify for the playoffs.
FSSRU official Biu Colati said this weekend would determine the teams' placing.
"It's going to be an exciting clash for these teams. A win is what all teams need. No one has confirmed their spot but whoever wins this week is likely to qualify."
