An all Eastern U18 clash

IS Samisoni Baikeitoga's prediction a prophecy?

That is a question that came into my mind when Ratu Kadavulevu School and Lelean Memorial School under-18 sides won their respective Coke Zero Deans semi-finals yesterday.

Baikeitoga, a former RKS schoolteacher and Fiji age group rugby coach earlier told this newspaper that the Deans trophy was returning to its homeland this year the Eastern Zone after Ratu Navula won the coveted trophy for the first time ever last year.

And the prediction is true, defending champions, Ratu Navula lost 8-11 to RKS in yesterday's semi-final and LMS edged Queen Victoria School 21-18 in the Eastern zone battle.

Baikeitoga said he knew that the Deans Trophy would return to where it belonged.

"Like I predicted earlier, the East will win the Deans this year," he said with a smile on his face.

"I just saw the approach of all the Eastern teams, I knew that it was coming back to the East."

And as an RKS ex-scholar his prediction came in a double celebration mode.

"Either LMS or RKS will win the Deans only time will tell."

The Deans Tier One finals will be played at Lautoka's Churchill Park on August 16.
