School wants to create history

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, April 01, 2014

BA Provincial Freebird Institute under-19 rugby league team is two steps away from creating history in the Vodafone Fiji Secondary School rugby league competition.

This, after the Lautoka-based side defeated defending champion Nasinu 20-12 in last weekend's quarter-final

Assistant principal Isei Rokotuibau said the win against Nasinu last weekend was no fluke.

He said he was not surprised with the outcome of the game knowing the sacrifices and the commitment made by the players during training.

Rokotuibau said the boys had proved their capabilities against Nasinu and they were confident of beating Lelean in this weekend's semi-final.

"We were not surprised with our win because we have mentally, spiritually and physically prepared for the game," he said.

"The boys were confident of their chances and they delivered the goods required of them.

"The boys are in high spirits and they are bracing for another huge game against Lelean."

Rokotuibau said the team would try its best to defeat Lelean on their home turf.

He has called on the people of Ba living in Suva and surrounding areas to come in huge numbers and support the boys on Saturday.

"This team will not only represent the school but the people of the Western Division."

"We will treat this game as the final and we will do our best to win the game," he added.

The semi-finals will be played at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.
