Nasinu Secondary School restored some pride for the Southern Zone in the Fiji Secondary Schools rugby league competition after their under-17 team won 20-14 against Ratu Navula College yesterday at Lawaqa Park during the Vodafone Fiji school rugby league finals.

Rusiate Silimaibau drew first blood for Ratu Navula in the 2nd minute of the first half but the conversion missed.

Nasinu's Mosese Boladrau replied with a try three minutes later to level the score 4-all.

Ratu Navula skipper Joape Driu dotted down his team's second try after he dummied his way to the tryline.

Nasinu replied with another try from Jone Lawakilevu to level scores again before Tevita Murimurivalu made a 60 metres dash to the tryline after brushing off some half-hearted tackles from Ratu Navula. Sekaia Viaviaturaga converted the try to give the Southerners a 14-8 lead.

Murimurivalu was instrumental in Nasinu's fourth try after a well-timed pass to Lako Waqanivalu sent him under the post. The try was converted and Nasinu led 20-8.

A converted try from Ratu Navula's Josefa Taletawa was a bit too late as time was not on their side.

Nasinu manager Taraivini Nakabuniceva said it is always hard for any Southern team to win at Lawaqa Park.

"We told the players to remain focused and stay competitive throughout the game.

"I'm glad they played according to our coach's game-plan and I would like to thank all players for a great performance," she said.
