MBHS U17 End RKS Dream Run

MBHS U17 End RKS Dream Run

12:38 2018

The Ratu Kadavulevu School’s dream run to defend all their titles in the Powerade Super Deans Rugby Championship came to an abrupt halt at Buckhurst Park in Suva yesterday.

This was after the RKS Under-17 side were beaten 13-11 by Marist Brothers High School.

What happened: It was battle of men­tal and physical fitness, as MBHS took an early 6-0 lead through two converted penalties kicks. But RKS clawed their way back and levelled the scores at 6-6.

Marist kept on the tempo and scored the first try to Vuata Wadani who also landed the conversion for a 13-6 lead. RKS returned the favour with a try with the conversion going wide.

Comments: MBHS U17 coach Peniasi Dobui said: “We used to walk from school to Nasese to train and I kept re­minding that boys to hang in there. I would like to thank the boys for their hard work and were disciplined,

“We just came in to execute our game plan, and we knew RKS had a weakness with discipline.”

Other U17 quarterfinal results, Lelean Memorial School beat Nasinu Second­ary School 24-15, Queen Victoria School edged out Natabua High School 27-20 and Ratu Navula College beat John Wes­ley College 29-19.
