Ratu Kadavulevu School U19 team staged a fightback to beat Lelean Memorial School 14-13 in the Coke Zero Deans final at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

The boys from Davuilevu had a strong start scoring two tries through Frank Usakisuva and left wing Netani Vakayalia.

First five –eighth Waisale Nayavucere kicked a penalty for LMS to 13-0 at halftime.

Just when LMS thought they got a title in the bag,  RKS provided the fightback scoring two tries through Netani Momo and Serupepeli Cokanasiga who also kicked the two conversions.

RKS captain Saimoni Seruvatu said he reminded the players in the changing room to continue fighting.

“I told the boys to keep on giving their best, never give up and believe.

“ We want to thank the Lord for this victory,” Seruvatu said.

Meanwhile LMS head coach Seremaia Bai was disappointed with the players’ attitude after being involved in a brawl towards the end.

“I’m very disappointed with the result. Discipline let us down, taking part in the brawl is not what I’m teaching the boys.”
