TRADITIONAL rivals Ratu Kadavulevu and Queen Victoria schools will square off in the under-18 final of the Eastern Zone Secondary Schools rugby competition next week.

This is after both sides won their respective semi-finals at the Sila Central High School grounds in Nausori yesterday.

RKS, fielding a second-string side edged Sila Central 5-0 in the first semi-final before QVS won its tussle with Lelean Memorial School 9-6.

Eastern zone official Samisoni Baikeitoga said the final would be exciting to watch. QVS lost to RKS 18-25 during its round-robin clash.

However, Baikeitoga said the final would be another story.

"RKS beat Sila Central and QVS edged Lelean to set up a final match-up," he said.

"It will be interesting to watch this game because RKS beat QVS in the round robin match and I believe the boys from Vulinitu will want to avenge the loss.

"RKS is the top team at the moment and I'm sure they will want to continue the momentum."
