MBHS targets clean record

CONTINUING their winning streak is a challenge and the Marist Brother's High School under-17 side will want to overcome this in this weekend's Coke Zero Deans rugby semi-final at the ANZ Stadium.

The MBHS side, dubbed as the Dream Team for winning the Deans trophy from the U14 grade, will be out to maintain their clean record in the Fiji secondary schools rugby competition against Ratu Kadavulevu School tomorrow.

The Ratu Simione Matanitobua-captained side has a huge challenge to live up to.

And heading into the do or die clash, the Flagstaff boys prefer to be tagged as the underdogs.

Yesterday, the side polished its set piece moves including line-outs.

The backline, led by Matanitobua, worked on its moves.

The MBHS boys understand how tough the test is against RKS.

Having beaten RKS from U14 level, MBHS is eager to get up to another level.

The side beat Queen Victoria School in the U14 final, Lelean Memorial School in the U15 and Ratu Navula College in last year's final.

A win tomorrow will see them play either LMS or Natabua High School in the final. Team coach Waisake Kalivetau said his troops needed the support of the Marist family to boost their performance.

"I'm urging all supporters, former scholars, parents and teachers and all members of the Marist community to come out in numbers and support all the Marist teams," he said.

MBHS will be represented in the U17, U16 and U14 categories.

The MBHS and RKS game kicks off at 11.50am at the ANZ Stadium.
