Lelean Memorial School celebrated their Coke Zero Deans Under- 18 rugby team victory in Davuilevu yesterday.

The team marched from their school to the Davuilevu Theological College, then to the Young People’s Department before finishing off at Dilkusha Girls Home.

Coach Ilaitia Masi said it was a momentous occasion and they would not forget, especially, marching with the girls from Dilkusha making them part of the celebration.

“It was so nice to see the parents, old scholars and supporters of the school at the celebration and the boys felt a sense of pride when we walked with the young girls from Dilkusha,” Masi said.

“The reason why we are so close with Dilkusha is that they have supported us big through their prayers and our Deans victory is dedicated to them.

“Even the strongest people go weak when they go to Dilkusha; it is a place to empty yourself and that’s what the boys have been doing before every major game we played, we visited them. We do this so that the boys can come down to their level.”

Lelean Memorial School claimed the Deans victory and made history after beating Ratu Kadavulevu School 13-8 in the Coke Zero Deans competition last month.

“Next year can wait because right now, exams are coming up and the boys need to focus on that and that comes first before rugby,” said Masi. While most of the U18 players will have another chance to defend the trophy next year, this will be Eroni Mawi’s last year as the 18-year-old captained the side through their final game against RKS.

“It will be my last year and this couldn’t have been a better way to end it. Today, I felt a lot of pride and also feel honoured to have visited the Dilkusha Girls Home, ” he said.
