QVS wary of St John’s U19

QUEEN Victoria School under-18 team is focusing on how they will play against St John’s College in the semi-finals of the Eastern Zone Rugby competition at Ratu Cakobau Park this weekend.

Assistant Principal Dan Domoni said St John’s had been pressuring them during their pool games.

“We are trying our best to keep the players focused on the task at hand during the game. St John’s is playing better than us during the pool games and that puts a lot of pressure on us,” Domoni said.

Domoni said they were pushing hard in their preparations as they were focusing on their 100 years cadet training in school.

“We are not up to par with our preparations as we are engaged with the barracks week.

“So emphasis is placed on cadet as it is a core function of the school and we respect that.

“We have injuries and we are hoping they would recover in time before the semi-final.

“The players and our medical team are working hard to manage the injury crisis,” he said.

Both school had one loss in their pool games and the Victorians hope with the ball in their court now, they have to prove themselves as champions that they can make it through.

“We have to do the “first thing first. We feel that RKS is playing better this season and we have to catch up a lot,” he said.
