THE Southern Zone Secondary Schools Rugby will have a meeting today to discuss ways of maintaining the number of spots in next year's Deans Secondary Schools Rugby competition.

The zone is in danger of losing one of its spots in the prestigious under-18 grade after all its teams that made the top eight lost in the national quarters last month.

Zone official Biu Colati said such as the other zones, they were also concerned about their placing in the Deans competition.

He said the qualifiers which would be held this Saturday at the ANZ Stadium would be a crunch time for the competing zones.

"The battle will be intensive in all the grades. The teams that have booked their places in the finals don't have to worry about its places," Colati said.

"As soon as you lose in the quarters, the battle to maintain your spot in the Tier One competition begins. For the zones its very important because the more places in the tier one will mean a better chance to win the Deans."

Colati said during the meeting today, they would discuss ways to help teams that would be playing in the qualifiers maintain their spot for next year.

Meanwhile, the Deans finals will be held the following Saturday.

Fixtures:

Tier 1 finals - U14 QVS-MBHS, U15 QVS-Rt Navula, U16 Natabua-MBHS, U17 MBHS-LMS, U18 RKS-LMS, U19 Lomaivuna-RKS
