SECONDARY Schools rugby heavyweights Ratu Kadavulevu and Queen Victoria schools under-18 sides will battle for top honours in the Eastern zone final today in Nausori.

The sides will fight for a final spot to determine which opposition they face at the upcoming Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Deans Trophy quarter-finals next week.

RKS has been in top form this season and is favoured to edge their traditional nemesis from Vulinitu this afternoon at Ratu Cakobau Park.

The boys from Delainakaikai also beat QVS during their round robin clash.

However, heading into today's crunch game, only the best will emerge says Eastern zone official, Samisoni Baikeitoga.

"It's a game where none of the two teams will want to be on the losing end," he said.

"So I'm urging the supporters and old scholars to come out in numbers and support their teams in the Eastern zone final."

Bakeitoga said RKS would be firing all its strike weapons to finish as the top seeded side from the zone.

The winner of the zone plays Suva Grammar School in the Deans quarter-final while the losing team plays either Lelean Memorial School or Navuso.

The boys from Davuilevu will play Navuso for the third and fourth place placing. Four teams from the zone will qualify for the Deans quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, former Nadroga, Naitasiri and Flying Fijians assistant coach Reverend Joji Rinakama has been helping LMS at training.

RKS takes on QVS at 3.15pm today. Admission Fees — $4 (adults); $2 _ children, students in uniform.
