THE Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union has maintained its stand that the Ratu Navula under-18 side will feature in the Coke Zero Deans semi-final this afternoon.

The defending champion's chances of playing Ratu Kadavulevu School hung on the balance following John Wesley College's protest that the Nadi-based school did not play six competitive games prior to the play-off as stated in the FSSRU 15 Rules of Competition.

JWC principal Joji Nakaora said FSSRU should consider Ratu Navula did not play six competitive game before the play-off.

A letter from the Nadi Secondary Schools Rugby Union stated that Ratu Navula played five friendly games and two competitive games against Ba Provincial and Natabua High School during the West Zone Two competition.

However, yesterday, FSSRU cleared the air that Ratu Navula would feature in the semi-finals today.
