Written By : VUNIWAQA BOLA . Defending Deans Trophy champions, Queen Victoria School came back after their loss last week to defeat Sila Central in Nausori yesterday.
Eastern Zone official, Eparama Ratumudu yesterday said the Victorians adapted well in the wet.
“It was a strong game but QVS proved too good.”
Ratumudu said after their loss to arch rivals and neighbouring school, Ratu Kadavulevu last week, QVS did not want to leave any stones unturned.
“They came back and they dominated.”
Ratumudu added the boys from Vulinitu were superior in all aspects of the game.
“Sila players were small compared to the QVS boys.”
However, Ratumudu said SCHS players had the guts and also showed good defensive skills.
“QVS’ kicker last week was not good enough and today (yesterday) they came with a mission to win.”
Ratumudu said it was still the early stages of the secondary schools competition and no school could be counted out as yet.
“The game could have gone either way if Sila had been able to kick all their penalties.”
Ratumudu said a few penalties given to Sila were not converted and this cost them the match.
“Both teams played a clean and good game,” Ratumudu said.
QVS won both the U17 and U19 match by 12-7 and 12-0 respectively.
Eastern Zone schools have always proven to be the best in the oval ball game in the past years during secondary school rugby meets.
The zone consists of giants, QVS, RKS and Lelean Memorial.
