Eastern schools set target

THE Eastern Zone Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union is looking to secure more spots in the Fiji Secondary School Deans quarter-finals.

EZFSSRU president Solomone Seru said they would be planning to bring it to the attention of the main Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union body.

He said at the moment they had 20 schools competing in their zone which makes them the biggest rugby zone in the country.

"We have schools from Ovalau, Tailevu, Rewa, Naitasiri and Nausori areas all participating in our zones. And I think it would be a good idea to give us another extra spot in quarter-finals apart from the usual three," Seru said.

According to Seru, the three spots they have are usually occupied by the big three Queen Victoria School (QVS), Ratu Kadavulevu School (RKS) and Lelean Memorial School(LMS).

"We have other promising schools like Sila Central, Saint John Cawaci and Tailevu North College who are vying for spots for the quarter-finals."

He said with the inclusion of the new spot this would enable other schools in their zone to be exposed in the main Deans' finals.

"At the moment we are focusing on the competition at hand for this year but this is something that we will be looking to bring up in the near future," he said.

The EZFSSRU competition will be kicking off this Saturday at the Sila Central College grounds in Nausori.

The first match will be between LMS and QVS in the under-14 grade at 9am today.
