Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union executive Biu Colati says, teams that have qualified for the quarterfinals of the Powerade Super Rugby Deans competition will be determined according to their rankings.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday, Colati said, once the zone fi­nals have been completed this Saturday, the zone officials will meet and submit which teams have qualified.

“The official list of teams will be determined later after all verification has been done to see that all schools have abided by the rules and regulations of the competition,” Colati said.

“The rankings of the teams will determined who goes through, it does not necessarily mean that the schools that have finished in the top two.”

Colati said some teams have performed well during the zone competition and it is still anyone’s game.

“Ratu Kadavulevu School has been undefeated so far and the point’s margin in every game has a huge gap. The level of preparations has really gone up and I am sure that by next year all schools will learn from RKS and prepare for the tour­nament in advance.

“History has that a school cannot be winners for too long, so we should not underestimate schools from the Southern and Western zones.

“This year the committee has plans to bring in a more cul­tural aspect to the game, how this will be done is still being decided but plans are in progress.”


Eastern Zone: Ratu Kadavulevu School, Lelean Memorial School; Southern Zone: Marist Brothers High School, John Wesley College; Western Zone: Ratu Navula College, Cuvu Col­lege.
