MARIST Brother’s High School Under-18 side had to rely on the rule books to secure a spot in the semi-final of the Fiji Secondary School Schools Powerade Super Deans Rugby Championship.

The young men from flagstaff were held to a 5-all draw by Queen Victoria School in the second quarter-final.

Lock Angelo Smith scored early to put MBHS 5-nil ahead but QVS winger Luke Nabulagi cancelled the lead late in the second spell.
