I’m Proud Of My Boys: Father Manu

St John’s College principal Father Ekuasi Manu remains proud of their Under-17 rugby team despite losing 6-12 to Queen Victoria School in the Coke Zero Deans competition at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Father Manu said the sacrifices the team made gave them the strength to reach the final after a long time, but vow to come back stronger next year.

“It was a tough game, my boys played their hearts out for their school as it has been a long time since St John’s has come this far in the competition,” he said.

“I think they made an impact today and they know that can beat QVS. But credit to QVS, they have been a huge force in this Deans competition.

“If there was a team that sacrificed more it was my team. We stayed and we built our school after Cyclone Winston. Most of my senior boys stayed back and helped rebuild the school.

“After one week, the boys were back in their classrooms and two weeks later the girls were back at school, that’s how hard my boys worked to rebuild the school.

“I’m very proud of them. St John’s is renowned for discipline and we are gracious in defeat.”

St John’s received $1100 in prize money while QVS received $2200.
