Queen Victoria School East Rugby Club was declared the overall winner of the Kontiki Finance Battle of the Victorians Rugby Challenge that was held at Buckhurst Park, Suva, yesterday.

They proved too strong for QVS West with a 23-13 win to claim the Sitiveni Ligamamada Rabuka Shield.

QVSOB Rugby Club secretary Tevita Tuiloa said the main purpose of the challenge is to create a platform for the club members to maintain their fitness and health condition

“This competition is to bring the QVSOB together,” he said.

“There are two clubs one from the west and another in Suva that are competing today. This is the battle against the Eastern and Western old boys.

Tuiloa acknowledged their sponsors Kontiki Finance, Fiji Water and Coca-Cola for backing the yearly event.

“Firstly, a big vinaka vakalevu to both rugby clubs and players especially our brothers from the west for preparing well for today’s games.

“Also, the oldies match saw some past players coming back for a good game and excercise contributing to the fight against NCD and 30 minutes excercise.”

RESULTS
