BPFI in national playoffs

Maciu Malo
Saturday, March 15, 2014

THE BA Provincial Freebird Institute under-19 team has secured a spot in the quarter-finals of the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League Competition.

The Lautoka-based school cemented its spot in the national eliminations after leading the Lautoka Nadi zone points table with a game in hand.

Zone president Isei Rokotuibau said the team's final round game against Nadi Muslim would just be a formality since the side had already secured a spot in the national quarters.

He said Ba Pro had been impressive in the weekly competition and stands a good chance in the national playoffs.

The side lost out to Ratu Navula in last year's national finals and Rokotuibau believes the team will be the team to beat this season.

"Ba Pro has secured the zone's top spot while the second spot will be contested by Natabua High School and Ratu Navula," said Rokotuibau.

"Ba Pro players have matured quickly since their exposure in last year's championship and will be a force to reckon with this year.

"But the side will be tested by Nadi Muslim in their last round games tomorrow."

Ba Pro will meet Nadi Muslim while Natabua will battle neighbour Tilak High School in the other U19 game.

Rokotuibau said Natabua leads the race in the U17 grade and they look set to top the zone meet for the national quarter-finals.

In the U15 garde, Central College is likely to be seeded as the zone number one team after leading the points table at the completion of round four.

The round five of games will be played at Ba Provincial School grounds today.
