Cuvu College Under-18 for­ward Isireli Vananalagi broke the hearts of Ratu Na­vula College players and fans with his winning try as they narrowly won 31-28 in Nadi yesterday.

Vananalagi came off the bench to score with a minute left on the clock as the hosts tried to cover up their weak defence. A sudden for­ward surge saw Vananalagi cross over the scoring line.

Cuvu College led 21-14 in the first half with two tries to lock Jone Naulunisau and winger Vilikesa Bogi while Ratu Navula scored through Osea Waqaninavatu and Malelili Tuimereke.

In the second half Ratu Navula scored tries to Qio Derenalagi and Ulaiyasi Naraukawa while Vanana­lagi scored for Cuvu.

Cuvu College skipper Peniasi Ratu said: “It was a tough game but we managed to pull through in the last minute.”

Ratu Navula College principal Se­tareki Merekula said they expect to intensify and beef up the zone’s U18 competition.

“Only the under-18 grade is not competed in the zone but the whole Westerns school must have a go at it.

“Other grades are played in the zone before the western playoffs. This is the second year running and the objective is to prepare them well before the nationals.”
