A lot will be at stake during the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League semifinals at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori on Saturday.

Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League secretary Biu Colati said the players will need to perform to their best as local and overseas selectors will be present.

“They not only have to perform to win but they need to perform to be noticed,” Colati said.

“Last week in the quarterfinals, we had the Melbourne Storm scouts at Garvey Park in Tavua.

“We are not sure which overseas scouts will be at Ratu Cakobau Park but regardless the boys need to play their hearts out.

“The local selectors will also be selecting a team to play in Australia.

“There are lot of opportunities for these boys, if they miss out being selected for the local team, they could be picked by overseas selectors.

“I think the motivation to be noticed will bring out some good competition.”

Colati said the clash of the two codes will hopefully draw a lot of spectators.

“.In rugby, Ratu Kadavulevu School and Lelean Memorial School arê the traditional champions while Nasinu Secondary and Ba Provincial are the champions in league,” he said.

“We are expecting a thriller so we are urging everyone to come out in numbers and support their teams.”

Nasinu Secondary plays Ratu Kadavulevu in the first semifinal while Lelean Memorial face Ba Provincial in the feature match on Saturday.
