SECONDARY schools rugby league champions Ba Provincial Freebird Institute could not continue its winning performance in Coke Zero Deans Tier One rugby competition.

The Lautoka-based U19 side lost in their semi-final clash against Ratu Kadavulevu School 19-6 at Bidesi Park yesterday.

RKS led by last year's Fiji U18 reps Mosese Tikicidre and scrum-half Leone Nawai proved too handful for Ba Provincial to handle.

Tikicidre touched down the Lodonians opening try and converted by Apisai Lomani.

Waisale Sova scored RKS's second try and Jeremaia Yavala successfully added the extras.

Vereti Tupou, the first- five-eighth for Ba Provincial kicked two penalties to narrow the deficit 6-14.

Both sides were evenly matched in the second half as the rugby league champions unleashed all goods in the bag.

However, RKS with the backing of a vocal crowd maintained its composure which resulted in their third try through Wame Ratuva.
