West wants top spot back

THE West Zone Two Rugby Union is determined to regain the second spot in the tier one under-16 and U18 grades of the Coke Zero Deans Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Championship.

West Zone Two lost its second spot to the Tailevu zone in 2012.

Natabua High School carries its hopes in the U18 category while Ratu Navula College is spearheading the campaign in the U16 grade.

Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union Western vice-president Lionel Danford said West Zone Two was on a mission to regain the top spots.

Danford said they faced a stiff challenge playing away from home.

"Both teams are in the semi-finals now," he said.

"They have to win the semi-final and then the final. After that there will be the promotion/relegation against the bottom placed team from tier one.

"So it is still a long and tough road ahead. At the beginning of the season the mission was set out to get through to the top tier."

In the U18 tier two semi-final Natabua will play Assemblies of God High School while in the U16 Ratu Navula College will clash with Ratu Sukuna Memorial School.

The Deans semi-finals will be held in Suva this Saturday.
