Nasinu Ready For Today’s Battle

Nasinu Secondary School (NSS) has made today’s Under-15, U17 and U19 semifinals of the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League competition.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday, NSS coach Mikaele Yasiyasi said they are happy to reach the semifinals of all the grades for the first time.

“It is a milestone achievement for us,” he said.

“It really proves the level of preparation we’ve put in for the competition. We are trying to play a structured game and it’s important for the players to stick to our game plan as we aim to qualify for next week’s finals.”

Yasiyasi said they are confident of winning their U19 clash against Ratu Kadavulevu School.

“Actually, we’re looking for a win because our opponents are one of the top teams in the competition. We’ve not won the under-19 title for the past four years.

“Last year we tried our best but lost in the semifinals but our biggest boost this year is that all our three grades have qualified for the semifinals.

“We are expecting a tough competition from all the teams in the three grades in the semifinals and I would like to wish the boys all the best.”

The NSS rugby league team have produced top players like Marika Koroibete, Virimi Vakatawa and Sakeo Raloa

The semifinals are played at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori. The entry fees are: Grandstand $5 while children in uniform will be $2. The main gate opens at 8am.
