QVS Blues

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva | Thursday, August 10, 2017
The Victorian family nearly suffered a heart attack in last week's Deans Trophy U18 semi-final between QVS and St John's College.

The boys from Cawaci should have won that game but the fitness, confidence and defence from the defending champs, even when they had only 13 players on the field at one stage, just showed the class in the QVS team.

The huddle at midfield for a quick prayer with just minutes to go after they brought the points up to 12-13, just shows the never say die attitude they have and seeking divine help for a final onslaught before the final whistle.

It was a heartbreak for St John's College to lose the game 15-13 in the dying seconds of the game, but it is good to know that the boys from Cawaci were coached by two QVS old boys and maybe next year would be their year. From the semis, one can say that RKS will go in as favourites in the Deans Trophy final against their neighbour and traditional rival QVS — the defending champion.

Fasten your seat belts as this will be one cracker of a game.

Again the Victorian family will be out in numbers to support the three QVS teams in the Coke Deans finals, especially for QVS to successfully defend the U18 Deans Trophy 2017.

Go QVS Blues.
