RKS U16 beats Grammar

A GUTSY performance from Ratu Kadavulevu School saw them beat Suva Grammar School in the under-16 quarter-final clash yesterday.

And despite playing with a man down from the first half, the Delainakaikai boys played unity rugby and guts, sharing the extra work load to edge SGS 15-10 at Bidesi Park.

A 10-0 lead at the break set the platform for RKS as the Grammar boys rallied back strongly in the second spell.

Masi Saqanavere who is part of the RKS coaching panel saluted his troops for their defensive effort throughout the game.

"It was a good performance from the boys and I congratulate them," he said.

"Our defence really stood out because we were playing with 14 players for most of the time."

He said Grammar had the size compared to his players.

Saqanavere said their kicking game disrupted the Grammar defense.

"We knew we don't have the size and that is why we kicked deep into their territory but then they followed our game plan in the second half. We then played a close game."

He said they needed to regroup before the semi-finals next week.
