THE Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union rules have favoured Saint John's College Cawaci to qualify for the semi-finals of the under-15 Tier Two.

This is after the Ovalau-based school drew 7-all with Cuvu College during their quarter-final at the Marist Brothers High School grounds yesterday.

Both side were locked nil-all at the end of the game, and after sudden death neither side scored a try. The FSSRU officials awarded the win to SJC for scoring the first try.

Team coach Viliame Seuseu said they were happy with the win.

"I thank the boys for their effort, it was a hard game but we're satisfied with the outcome," he said.

Seuseu said it was unity within the team that unveiled the result.

"I think the secret to our win today (yesterday) is our bonding.

"I thank the supporters and all that supported us which enabled us to come this far."

Ratu Matemosi scored SJC's try while Kiniviliame Natuna scored for the Nadroga-based school.
