The capital sides remained unbeaten after Day Two and look set to claim the most number of titles this year.

Suva, which won four grades last year, are gunning for all six grades this year and are on a good run to achieving that goal.

Suva Blues Under-14 manager TakayawaTikoisuva said the fight was not over just yet and they had a tough competition ahead.

“We can’t say much at this stage because we have not won anything officially, but our aim this year is to win all six grades. I am confident that we can reach that goal especially when the boys have been doing so well.” he said.

Gau, on the other hand, has made their presence known in the competition, being the new blood, by winning their first game on Tuesday beating Wainibuka 20-0. They upset Tailevu yesterday 3-0, but could not maintain their unbeaten record as they were thrashed 0-35 by Suva in the U14 grade.

Macuata, Nadi and Nasinu have played well as their U9 to U12 joined in yesterday and Fiji Primary Schools Rugby secretaryPeniBavia said their inclusion would make the competition tougher.

“You can see the schools from outside the capital have developed a lot,” he said.

“For us, we are thankful for teachers, coaches and parents for working with these young boys to try and develop them because they have all put on strong performances,” he said.

“Tomorrow (today), there will be more upsets because of the number of teams competing and the level that they are competing at. They have set the bar high and improved from last year.

“Suva is always the favourite and all teams have their eye on them because of the advantage that they have, but Suva will have to look out for Nadi and Nasinu. The teams which won last year want to win and defend their titles.”

The eliminations and quarterfinals will start today with 16 teams from each grade competing for a quarterfinal spot.
