RATU Navula College U15 skipper Napolioni Vuadomo was a hero for his side as they tamed Nasinu 14- 8 in the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools rugby league finals at Lawaqa Park yesterday.

The Yanuya lad led his young troops from the front and was ruthless in every tackle he made in defense.

He was a workhorse for the Nadi-based school and also scored a try after completing a passing movement within a minute from fulltime.

Sakiusa Rokolui and Peni Nanuku also contributed a try each in a fiercely contested game watched by nearly 2000 rugby league fans from both schools including some tourists.

Brad Robertson from Australia said he enjoyed watching the U15 final.

"It was better than the under-17 final, they were entertaining," said the younger brother of Australian Kangaroo rep Michael Robertson.

Ratu Navula College under-15 coach, Sepesa Toni thanked his players for the victory.

"This is history in the making," he said.

He added only two players were the survivors from last year's team.

"The rest of the squad are new and I admire the way they performed on the field," he said.
