Former Canberra Raiders winger and Ratu Kadavulevu School captain Sisa Waqa wishes the Ratu Kadavulevu School teams the best ahead of this week’s Coke Zero Deans final.

Waqa attended Ratu Kadavulevu School (RKS) and had a stellar secondary school rugby career in the Deans Trophy competition. He was a star at first-five modelling his game after Stephen Larkham and leading his RKS under-19 side to the finals, eventually sharing the trophy with Suva Grammar School (SGS) in 2005.

Waqa said it is indeed an emotional moment for an old boy to see that all their former school grades qualified to the final.

“I was a bit emotional because I know how it is like to be out there on the field representing the school.

“As a former old boy and captain of the under 18 team it is a very proud moment to see the school doing well in rugby and maintaining the winning momentum in the competition.

“Also, I am aware how special the Deans competition especially for Fiji secondary school rugby.

“Unfortunately, I couldn’t witness the matches this Saturday but I believe they are prepared to take on their opponents.

“On behalf of my family and I, I would just like to wish the RKS teams all the best in the Coke Deans final this Saturday and I hope they all make us proud,” Waqa said.

Waqa’s first representative honours for Fiji was at age level.

Waqa then moved to Sydney in 2008, where he played for Gordon RFC. Waqa again starred as the top second grade first-five in the country’s most elite second grade competition the Shute Shield and was offered a contract with the ACT Brumbies in the Super 15 competition.
