NASINU Secondary School once again triumphed in the local secondary schools rugby competition.

This time the school created history after winning its first secondary school 7s title.

Nasinu beat Ratu Sukuna Memorial School 19-7 in the under-19 final of the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union 7s tournament yesterday at the Suva Grammar School grounds.

Ratu Kadavulevu School also signalled its return to competitive rugby by winning the under-17 final 12-0 against Lelean Memorial School and the U15 final 12-7 against neighbours Queen Victoria School.

Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union vice-president development Elemaca Ravulo said organisers got more than they bargained for.

"It was absolutely fantastic," he said.

"We were expecting a good performance from all schools but today (yesterday) we got to see really, really good performances from them all."

Ravulo said secondary schools sevens rugby was headed in the right directions and they would want it to continue on the same path.

"The interest is there, the talent is there and the skills are there.

"What more can you ask for. These players will only get better with age and sevens rugby in the country has a very bright future."

The 15s competition starts next weekend and Ravulo is expecting the same performance from the players.

"It will be the full code from next week and we are asking the schools and the players to keep improving and to keep getting better and better."
