THE WINNING TRY... Ratu Kadavulevu School U18 players and fans celebrate Jone Senikarawa’s try as they fought back to win 28-24 the Vodafone Super Deans U18 semi-final at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka.

Guts and sheer grit saw Vodafone Super Deans Under-18 defending champions Ratu Kadavulevu School score the winning try after the final hooter to escape with a 28-24 win over Cuvu College at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka yesterday.

Trailing 23-24 and on the last play RKS started their move from their 22-metre line and they worked their way over with replacement flanker Jone Senikarawa crashing over for the try that broke the hearts of the Cuvu College fans.

RKS team manager Osea Uluiviti told SUNsports they were sitting right at the edge of their seats.

“We know Cuvu College wanted to create history but we are here to create our own legacy,” he said.

In the Super Deans Trophy final, RKS are going to face neighbours Queen Victoria School after they beat the highly fancied Marist Brothers High School side 22-14 in the first semi-final.

QVS fought back after being down 7-0 from a Michael Henning try in the 5th minute.

MBHS captain and fullback Voate Karawalevu missed three kickable penalties in the first half which allowed QVS to hit back.

But it was burly QVS number eight Onisimo Korobola who made his presence felt with two tries in the second half that relegated MBHS to second best.
