Defending Coke Zero Deans Trophy champions Queen Victoria School will start as favourites against St John’s College in their semifinal clash at the ANZ Stadium, Suva on Saturday.

The two teams have met three times in their zone competition with Queen Victoria School winning twice while St John’s won during their home game in Levuka.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday Queen Victoria assistant principal, Dan Domoni said they’re expecting a tough game.

“Preparations are gearing up well as we’re looking forward to facing Saint John’s College again,” he said.

“We are well aware of what to expect at this level. We’ve played Saint John’s three times this year, twice in the pool games and once during the semifinal of the Eastern zone.

“So, this will be the fourth time that we’ll be facing them again and we’re anticipating a good game.

“For me personally, I see Saint John’s as the toughest opponent in the competition this year and they play better game than us as well. And they’ll come fully prepared to give us a good game this Saturday.”

Last Saturday, Queen Victoria scored an impressive 18-3 win over Ratu Navula College in the quarterfinals. While St John’s College scored an upset 20-6 win over Nasinu Secondary School.

Domoni said some players sustained injuries against Ratu Navula but he’s hopeful that they will recover before the game.

“At the moment we’ve a lot of injuries in the team and our medical staff are trying to make sure the players recover well before the game.

“We’re at the moment going back and reviewing St John’s game from last week so that we can gauge them well before the game and also try to work on how to better our performance this time.

“We’ll try to work hard as a team and avoid making mistakes so we can qualify for the final which is our aim.

“I would like to urge all our supporters to come out in numbers to support the team on Saturday.”
