ASSEMBLIES of God High and Lomaivuna Secondary schools will battle it out today to determine which team remains in the hunt for a title in the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League competition.
The two are part of the Southern Zone Secondary Schools competition but have been placed second in pool A and pool B respectively.
Zone official Biu Colati said Nasinu Secondary School topped pool A while pool B was won by Marist Brothers High School.
"We are no longer playing pool competition," he said.
"This weekend at Buckhurst and Bidesi Park, we will have the zone play-offs which will determine the schools that progress in the national competition."
He said Nasinu would face Marist to determine which school tops the zone meet and AOG and Lomaivuna will tussle for third spot.
"Only the top three from the southern zone will qualify for the national quarter-finals.
"So, with the top three from here, one school from the Tailevu zone, one from the Nadroga/Navosa zone, two from the Lautoka/Nadi zone and one from the Ra zone will all qualify for the national quarter-finals."
Colati said Nasinu and Marist had confirmed their spots in the quarter-finals and so all eyes will be on AOG and Lomaivuna tomorrow.
"Only the winner will progress, so the match is very important for both schools."
