REIGNING Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League Champions Nasinu Secondary School is still in the race to win the under-19 title.

They were relegated to fight it out in the third and fourth place play-off in the Southern Zone Secondary Schools competition yesterday.

The former zone champions beat Lomaivuna Secondary School 28-8 to cement their spot in the national quarter-finals.

Zone official Biu Colati said the top three from their zone would qualify for the national quarter-finals.

Last year's zone runner-up in the under-19 competition, Assemblies of God High School beat Marist Brothers High School 24-7 to win the zone.

"Nasinu, AOG, MBHS and Lomaivuna had all lost a match each and so today (yesterday), we got their actual placing," he said.

"But their ranking does not reflect their strength because Nasinu are the defending champions of the competition and had to win today (yesterday) if they wanted to stand a chance of retaining their title."

After the respective zone results, the national quarter-finals would be as follows:

U15: Nasinu-Nadroga/Navosa Provincial, Ra High-LDS, Lautoka Central-SGS, Nayala Secondary-Ratu Navula.

U17: Natabua-AOG, NSS-(Winner of Nadroga/Navosa zone), LMS-Ratu Navula, Vatukaloko-SGS.

U19: LMS-Natabua, Ra High-MBHS, AOG-Nadroga/Navosa Provincial, Ba Provincial-Nasinu.

Southern zone results:

U15: LDS 12 NSS 18, SGS 12 GHS 4;

U17: SGS 14 NSS 34, LDS 6 AOG 8;

U19: NSS 28 Lomaivuna 8, MBHS 7 AOG 24.
