LELEAN Memorial School under-19 defeated Queen Victoria School 22-11 in the fourth round of the Eastern Zone Rugby competition.

The boys from Davuilevu scored two tries in the first half to lead 12-6 in the first half.

But the Victorians came back strong to score only one try and Lelean scored another two tries in the second.

LMS coach Ulaiasi Vakatawakoula said the players had to fight back after losing two games in their last round.

“We had regrouped and worked on our fitness and our scrum in order to beat QVS,” Vakatawakoula said.

“We will now work on our weakness such as winning the lineouts and our defence line and our fitness.”
