CUVU College dominated the Nadroga/Navosa schools rugby union at Lawaqa Park on Saturday.

Their under 15, 16 and 17 all won the finals and will proceed to the Tier Two play off this week in Suva.

In the U15, Cuvu College won comfortably over Sigatoka Methodist College 22-8 while their U16 was too good for Nadroga Navosa Provincial High School beating them by 30 points to 8.

The U17 final was decided at sudden death against a tough Lomary Secondary School after they were tied at six all but the Naidovi-based school was awarded with a penalty which they turned into a three pointer.

Nadroga/Navosa school rugby union spokesman Sekove Rasukamaimalea said the school rugby competition this year had been very competitive.

"I would like to thank our sponsors Outrigger on the Lagoon for coming on board and assisted us financially and it has bore fruit," said Rasukamaimalea.

He added they now aimed to go to the play- offs and qualify for a place in the Tier One.

Sigatoka Andhra Sangam College's U18 side defeated Valley Junior Secondary School 16-10 at Lawaqa Park on Monday.

VJSS had the strength and fitness but failed in the discipline department as two of their players copped yellow cards while a third was red carded.

In the U19 grade, the Navatumali-based Navosa Central College will represent the province in the Tier Two play off .
