TWO new schools have joined the Serua Kaji Rugby Association for the new season.

And today, round two of competition starts in Pacific Harbour.

The two schools are Pacific Harbour Multicultural Primary and Rampur Primary Schools, while Nuku and Deuba districts are making a return to the association.

Serua is usually represented by Lomary Primary in the Fiji Primary Schools Kaji rugby competition, however, this year the four schools have joined hands to steer the association forward.

Former Fiji athletics rep and sports coordinator at Pacific Harbour Multicultural School Mitieli Savu said they were optimistic of a good outing this season.

"We're glad that four more schools have joined Serua this season," he said.

"Lomary usually represents Serua at national level but I've asked the association if other schools could join."

He said they were pleased with the response from schools and hoped to attract more in the future.

"This year we got a new school, PH Multicultural, Rampur and then Nuku and Deuba are coming back home after being affiliated to Namosi in the past seasons.

"We got talent here and I hope this competition will develop the knowledge of future rugby and netball players."

In the feature game today, Lomary takes on Deuba District in the under-14 grade. The rugby competition starts at 11am while the netball kicks off at 10.
