NATABUA High School won the West Zone Two Secondary Schools Rugby Union 7s under-19 grade after beating surprise finalist Yasawa High School 12-7 in the final.

The Natabua boys were pushed to the wire by their Yasawa counterparts and scored in the last minute to gain victory.

West Zone Two 7s tournament co-ordinator Lionel Danford said Yasawa proved to be the giant killers after upsetting favourites Ratu Navula.

"Yasawa was very impressive but lost concentration in the last minute to allow Natabua to score the winning try," Danford said.

"They will be the team to watch this year. They have a lot of raw talents. We are glad that they travelled all the way to be part of our tournament."

Yasawa High defeated Ratu Navula 14-0 in the semi-final while Natabua downed Ba Provincial 17-14.

Ratu Navula One won the U17 grade beating Ratu Navula Two 26-10.

In the semi-final, Ratu Navula One beat Natabua 12-5 while Ratu Navula Two defeated Saint Thomas 10-7.

Swami Vivekananda College defeated Tilak 12-7 in the U15 final.

In the semi-final, SVC beat Nadi College 14-0 while Tilak beat Nadi Muslim 12-7.
