THE Nasinu Primary Schools Mini Rugby Association is working hard to complete its competition in the next three weeks after it started late because of inclement weather in the past weeks. Association president Inia Rasoqosoqo said the competition was intense when it started last weekend.

“We could not have the competition started earlier because of bad weather, so we had teams playing three games each to cover up for the last couple of weeks,” Rasoqosoqo said.

“We have three more weeks to complete the round robin competition and the challenge matches. We will be able to complete the competition on time with the way we are going since we would be having three matches in every grade. “Our under-11, U10 and U13 teams lost to Suva in the national competition last year. This year, we will be having a central competition in Week 11. “We want to finish the competition by week 8, so the teams have two weeks to prepare for the Central meet in Week 11. “We have our U9 and U10 and the girls U12 and U14 grades taking part in the Get Into Rugby program. We have U11, U12, U13 and U14 grades playing in contact rugby while the U9 and U10 and the girls are competing in tag rugby.”
