IT will be a repetition of last year’s Coke Zero Rugby Deans final in the Under 18 grade between Ratu Kadavulevu School and Queen Victoria School as they battle in the semi-finals of the Fiji Secondary Schools Eastern Zone rugby competition on Saturday, July 7, at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Zone president Solomoni Seru said it would be an exciting and entertaining match between the two teams.

“RKS is the champion of secondary schools rugby in the world and QVS has been a familiar cup holder for the prestigious Deans trophy, so this match will be a nail-biting experience for the fans,” Seru said.

“QVS pushed RKS to the wire in the round robin and they will come out stronger this weekend.”

In the second semi final, Lelean Memorial School will take on Saint Johns College from Cawaci.

The U15, 17 and 19 semi finals will also be held on Saturday at Sila Central ground and Ratu Cakobau Park ground two.

In the semi finals for the Southern Zone U18 grades, Suva Grammar School will play Marist Brothers High School while Nasinu Secondary School will take on John Wesley College this Saturday at Suva Grammar grounds.
